Jed McKenna - Awake is just awake

If a person is dead but their body is still walking around, they’re a zombie. If a person is dead but their body and personality are still walking around, they’re enlightened.

The enlightened state is not, as is commonly supposed, THE special state.

The unenlightened state is the magical, mysterious, incomprehensible state. Awake is just awake. It’s not something more, it’s everything less.

My state is natural and easy. I carry no baggage. I labor under no delusion. I don’t spend my life force animating a fictional persona. Paradox lies only with the unawakened state.
