Fearless Samadhi
Excerpts from the Jewel Mirror Samadhi 

Thusness wrote to me yesterday:

"In my opinion many of our great aspirations and high views turn empty talks easily.

After the direct insight of anatta, it opens the gate that allows one to experience effortlessly all sensations that arise without duality, without fear, without doership and without ownership. Many are unable to see the "why"s and "how" of "directness", so don't waste your insights that have given the opportunity in this life.

Train yourself to do that with sincerity and dedication first. Then you will be fully in touch with your original purity; you will be genuinely in touch with peace and openness."

More later:

If we want to experience fully and have genuine peace, be very sincere in sensing all your sensations for pretense, blames, rejections and contractions... ...don't rush... slow down your thoughts and scan all your sensations for these... see all these traces... see all these come from the "I"s and "mine"s... develop a strong willingness to let go with your insights of anatta. If you can for a brief moment be free from the conceit of I, the craving of mine and the background of I AM, that moment you are respectable even to the gods.

I do not want you to get into too high views and lose touch with genuine and simple practice."


Thusness, 2007:

(5:29 PM) Thusness:    what are the 3 characteristics (of self-liberation)?
(5:29 PM) AEN:    impermanence, suffering, no self ?
(5:29 PM) Thusness:    nope
(5:29 PM) Thusness:    i just told u the other day
(5:30 PM) Thusness:    completely non-dual and transparent.
(5:30 PM) Thusness:    Completely fearless
(5:30 PM) Thusness:    completely non-attached
(5:30 PM) Thusness:    so if a person after the experience of no-self, and is able to attain this 3 characteristics
(5:31 PM) Thusness:    then his hui geng (wisdom root) is truly deep
(5:31 PM) Thusness:    da geng qi (superior capacity)
(5:32 PM) Thusness:    means the enlightenment of non-dual of our nature leads directly to self liberation
(5:32 PM) Thusness:    that is because the 'sense of self' is completely eliminated from 7th
(5:32 PM) Thusness:    and karmic propensities become self liberated 

Even after initial realization of anatta, we have to continue practicing and meditating until these three aspects are perfected.
