Ignorance Cannot Endure

face 2Enlightenment is not an evolutionary attainment. It is the very nature of being.

It is ignorance that constitutes an involution, a retrogression from the natural state. It is a temporary subjection to wrong views and afflicted emotions.

Because being cannot cease to be what it truly is, this involution cannot endure. It can be voided and reversed at any moment.

Enlightenment is not something to be attained, constructed, or perfected in the future. It is always present, always complete. It is natural.
