Greetings Pilgrims! Inspired by a comment submitted on another page by ‘Rosco’ (moved to below), I realized that this was a very interesting question, perhaps the only question of any real significance.
That is: If ‘Jed’ claims that it takes 2-3 years to go from unenlightened to enlightened, then- “How’s it going for you”? Jed also claims that it took himself about 10 years to ‘get the hang of it,’ whatever that means!
Here is Rosco’s comment:
“Are we at the point where we can test Jed’s postulation that enlightenment takes no more than 2-3 years? All the adherents who are enlightened shout “YEAH”!!!“
I don’t mind going first so here is my report:
Nea! after about 3.5 years. I reckon this date from the time when I realized that, not only was I full of shit, but that the spiritual path that I had followed for 30 years was my worst ego-addiction! That path led somewhere valid, but in my grubby little hands, not ‘to’ liberation. Major psycho-spiritual break for my ego. Since then I have gone thru relentless transformations, and been blessed with a great capacity for going home, to a degree, and for a limited time periods, but certainly not, “abiding non-duality”, as Jedso so nicely puts it. So I guess I’m some kind of spiritual retard.
Personally, I would love to hear what others have experienced (for all the good it will do me!).
