AN ICONOCAST`S ICONOCLAST !!!! DEVASTATING !!!!...
ts straight to the core of the problem: The real problem is the solution. If you can't solve the problem, the problem ceases to be a problem. You are interested more in the solution than in the problem. But the solution applies only to tomorrow, not to the present - when are you going to solve the problem? - so it is not the solution. Why are you interested in finding out the solutions? They have not helped you. But you are looking at the solutions, you are interested in the solutions, not the problem. What is the problem? -- that is all I am asking. You have no problem there, but you are talking of solutions. One of his radical statements was: My teaching, if that is the word you want to use, has no copyright. You are free to reproduce, distribute, interpret, misinterpret, distort, garble, do what you like, even claim authorship, without my consent or the permission of anybody. Excerpts from the introduction by Stefano Esposito: U.G. swept away every other teaching and denied everything, including enlightenment! Yet a tangible strength behind his words was the evidence of an enlightenment: the force behind those words was like a primeval intelligence, a spontaneous and natural geniality that flowed like a swollen river and its effect was almost a "correction", a rearrangement of my synapses… As I read the book I knew from deep inside that THIS was what I was looking for... What I didn't know was that an actual Copernican Revolution was about to take place in my consciousness. I could not help but read "Mind Is a Myth", and eventually I finished reading the book. I thought with no doubt that, whatever enlightenment was, this man called U.G. had found it. There was a kind of Bhagavad Gita within me, where the various teachings fought between each other! In the middle of the battlefield there was U.G. who, like Arjuna, was killing mercilessly all my spiritual "ancestors", all the authorities... It was a disconcerting feeling; it was really tough to remain unsupported but - as he says - I eventually stood alone, without support, without teachers, without the need of an outer authority. His words liberated me from spiritual conditionings and although I can say that my research is not completely over, I am much more spontaneous and natural. All the spiritual teachings in the world are based and always answer the question of "how?". That question is a call for the therapists, the sellers and the "saviors of mankind," and eventually is a trap: spiritual seekers loose a lot of energy and money to find the answer to that misleading question. Spiritual seekers desperately look for the solution to their non-existing problems created by the misleading answers they sold us for centuries. A non-existing problem cannot have a real solution. The saviors sell their answers at a dearly price, we pay them, and in the end is just a carrot hanging on a stick that we keep following until our end; the gurus and the god-men thrive on this situation. U.G. always maintained that there is no way to reach the state he stumbled into, what he called the "natural state". He constantly emphasizes that there is no "how", and little by little the mind surrenders and drops the so-called spiritual commitment. It drops the attachment to meditations and techniques which are always unsuccessful because they're just useless: the goal is only imagined. We cannot want something we don't know - U.G. maintains.
