The Unteaching


Friend, there is nothing more you need to know. You’ve already swallowed enough concepts, received enough second-hand ‘answers’.

Even the spiritual teachers are lost, truly believing themselves privy to the solutions, pretending to be perfect and not pretending.

I have no answers for you, nothing to teach, friend. I lost my answers long ago.

But I have so much to un-teach you.

For wonder cannot be taught, only uncovered. Innocence cannot be given. And awakening is not a destination, but the opening of weary eyes, long searching for light in the darkness, when the light was always on.

I cannot give you your nature, only remind you where to look.

– Jeff Foster
