☼ A Show About Nothing
A Show About Nothing
The Awakened one, who tried to wake others still dreaming in their dream worlds. The man they came to call “The Knower” or in Pali “Buddha” had established an Idea or guideline – today known as Buddhism, what I came to call “The Last Con”.
Buddhism, like everything else is an idea, similar to Seinfeld – it is a show about nothing, only data streams coming through your eyes and ears – all the while, bouncing around in your Thought, Memory & Feeling. And like all ideas, it is an illusion, a flame, another mental prison of birth and death. Buddhism provides a pathway for practitioners to see the conning mind, to no longer be conned by the mind and hence no longer be conned by Buddhism. A religion which leads practitioners to no religion… an idea which dissolves itself.
Advanced practitioners see Buddhism or any other religions as mere tools, guidelines, paths or ways to the truth… and not prisons for one’s own mind.
