What people call realization or enlightenment already exists – it is not ‘something’ to be acquired. Therefore, any and every attempt to ‘attain’ it is an exercise in self-defeating futility.
– Ramesh Balsekar
There is a school of thought which says that you are already enlightened and therefore there is nothing for you to do. You’re already there, so stop worrying about it.
This belief, I feel, comes from a tragic misinterpretation of Ramesh’s words quoted above.
Let me paraphrase:
What people call nakedness already exists – it is not ‘something’ to be acquired. Therefore, any and every attempt to ‘attain’ nakedness is an exercise in self-defeating futility.
You are already naked under your clothes. You are already enlightened under your illusions.
Nothing is attained.
It is just revealed.
