How an enlightened man became enlightened

“The sage Nisargadatta Maharaj was once asked how he became enlightened. He said, ‘My guru told me that I am the supreme source of all; I am the supreme. I pondered that until I knew that it was true, until I became it.’ He added, ‘I was lucky because I trusted what I was told.’ Freedom is the realization that this deep, deep peace and this unknown are what you are. Everything else is just an extension of that unknown. Bodies are just an extension of that unknown. The trees outside are just an extension of the unknown in time. The whole visible universe, in fact, is just an extension in time of this unknown, this mountain of quiet.”

~ Adyashanti
