The Vampire analogy – Jed McKenna
The misconception about mimicking enlightenment as a way of becoming enlightened can be seen everywhere. If you want to be an enlightened guy -the thinking goes- act like an enlightened guy.

Followers, Teachers and Gurus – Jed McKenna
Truth has no teaching, requires no guru, and is not a spiritual pursuit. The first rule in this business is that you are on your own.

Does it requires knowledge or outside authority? – Jed McKenna
Truth is about unknowing. No amount or combination of knowledge can bring about truth-realization because there is no leading to enlightenment. You are on your own.
