Here and Now

944982_762034337269525_469071648953021850_nEnlightenment is not an evolutionary attainment. On the contrary, ordinary existence is a temporary involution of our true nature.

Because nothing can cease to be what it is, this involution is not enduring. It arises at every instant, caused by wrong views and afflicted emotions, and is sustained momentarily by unwholesome conduct.

Enlightenment is not something to be attained in the future. Involution is to be reversed here and now.

In each moment, it is possible to revert to the natural state, Buddhahood.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.

    Great thought. Thank you for sharing it. I think the concept of involution is a neat thing to understand what we already know, but forgot somehow. Live the moment – Here and Now.
