Barry Long | The Way to Enlightenment

'Uninterrupted enlightenment of the brain was once the natural state of man and woman. The brain was a perfect instrument. It served the consciousness of man and woman and the will of the earth. Nothing suffered from its activities. Today the instrument has taken over. The servant has usurped the master's role. And the earth and every creature on it are the victims of its mad irresponsible wilfullness. Due to the ignorance of our times, or the sophisticated brain, uninterrupted enlightenment is now one of the earth's great rarities. It is almost an extinct phenomenon, comparable physically to the planet's most endangered (by the brain) species. And so it is said, the earth has few living masters.'

  1. Clear as crystal and free of all confounding eastern and western religious terminlogies. Barry Long's compelling grasp on Truth and Love as your own inherent "Pure Intelligence", free of every form of compulsive and conditioned thinking; and "Pure Sensation" empty of socio-personal feelings and emotions, is most effectively communicated to the western seeker. Even more clear and to the point than other great teachers/scholars of philosophy like Alan Watts, Krishnamurti, Echkart Tolle, Adyashanti, and others). Be forewarned however "the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off" applies here and with other audios authored by this teacher which are not for the faint at heart. Barry Long left his physical body and departed from us in 2004. Wish I had heard his teachings sooner, though this does not matter when seen from the time-less perspective.
