(I) Protection: Be patient with any obstacles and »judge not about it« . Just go your way.
 
(II) Introduction: Compare the words from the very beginning with your own direct experience. If you only read the text and think about the content, it sounds like philosophy and you understand nothing. The content reveals itself from the immediate methodological enactment. You have to »implement« the existing tasks before you can actually verify or falsify represented content. This is meant when it is said that you must »compare the words from the very beginning with your own direct experience«.

 
Task: Do nothing. Implement this task before you read further.

There are two different ways to implement this task:

  • You »practice« doing nothing. This is synonymouse to »conceptual reification«.
  • You do nothing. This is synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«.

Extended: Do nothing. Implement this task – but don’t meditate. How? Whenever you catch yourself »practicing« doing nothing instead of to do nothing, recognize how »an« subjective »doing nothing« permeates the experience due to your »practiced implementation«. So whenever you catch yourself »practicing« doing nothing instead of to do nothing, stop this »meditation« and do nothing. Did you recognize the difference between your fabricated and the factual task? Great. If you are naturally able to implement the task »de facto« instead of practicing resp. conceptually reify it again, this is already synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«. Since »primordial looseness« is completely unfabricated, there is immediate-obvious no need to practice resp. conceptually reify the task again.

 
Task: Leave everything as it is. Implement this task before you read further.

There are two different ways to implement this task:

  • You »practice« leaving everything as it is. This is synonymouse to »conceptual reification«
  • You leave everything as it is. This is synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«.

Extended: Leave everything just as it is. Implement this task – but don’t meditate. How? Whenever you catch yourself »practicing« leaving everything as it is instead of to leave everything just as it is, recognize how »an« subjectively »leaving everything as it is« permeates the experience due to your »practiced implementation«. So whenever you catch yourself »practicing« leaving everything as it is instead of to leave everything as it is, interrupt this »meditation« and leave everything as it is. Did you recognize the difference between your fabricated and the factual task? Great. If you are naturally able to implement the task »de facto« instead of practicing resp. conceptually reify it again, this is already synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«. Since »primordial looseness« is completely unfabricated, there is immediate-obvious no need to practice resp. conceptually reify the task again.

 
Task: Act normal. Implement this task before you read further.

There are two different ways to implement this task:

  • You »practice« acting normal. This is synonymouse to »conceptual reification«.
  • You act normal. This is synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«.

Extended: Act normal. Implement this task – but don’t meditate. How? Whenever you catch yourself »practicing« acting normal instead of to act normal, recognize how »an« subjective »acting normal« permeates the experience due to your »practiced implementation«. So whenever you catch yourself »practicing« acting normal instead of to act normal, stop this »meditation« and act normal. Did you recognize the difference between your fabricated and the factual task? Great. If you are naturally able to implement the task »de facto« instead of practicing resp. conceptually reify it again, this is already synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«. Since »primordial looseness« is completely unfabricated, there is immediate-obvious no need to practice resp. conceptually reify the task again.

 
Task: Simply sit. Implement this task before you read further.

There are two different ways to implement this task:

  • You »practice« simply sitting. This is synonymouse to »conceptual reification«.
  • You simply sit. This is synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«.

Extended: Simply sit. Implement this task – but don’t meditate. How? Whenever you catch yourself »practicing« simply sitting instead of simply to sit, recognize how »an« subjectively »simply sitting« permeates the experience due to your »practiced implementation«. So whenever you catch yourself »practicing« simply sitting instead of simply to sit, interrupt this »meditation« and simply sit. Did you recognize the difference between your fabricated and the factual task? Great. If you are naturally able to implement the task »de facto« instead of practicing resp. conceptually reify it again, this is already synonymouse to »primordial unfabricated looseness«. Since »primordial looseness« is completely unfabricated, there is immediate-obvious no need to practice resp. conceptually reify the task again.

 
(III) Commentary: Complementary to »practiced implementation«, consciousness fabricates an reified-identified »thing« out of the actual task. This is synonymouse to »artificiality« respectively »grasping« and prevents any »actual implementation«. »Practicing« doing nothing is »an doing nothing«, instead of the actual task that needs to be implemented. »Practicing« acting normal is »an acting normal«, instead of the actual task that needs to be implemented. »Practicing« simply sitting« is »an simply sitting«, instead of the actual task that needs to be implemented. If I tell you that I have no name and you reply: “Hello No Name”, then you are fabricating a »reified concept« from the »fact« that I have no name. In our particular case, consciousness is »already« the direct expression of conceptual reification. If you »practice« for example acting normal instead of to act normal, then your »practiced implementation« is the »reified conceptualisation« of the actual task and »an« »acting normal« resp. »acting normal‘nes« permeates the experience. Such subjectivity can evolve to extraordinary artificial states of consciousness. Due this greedy »reified-identified« subjectivity one want to get something very specific. That brings us back to the start of this circle.
 
(IV) Mnemonic: Every »actual implementation« is primordial-unfabricated respectively primordial-uncontrived. But don’t think in consequence, »..so there is nothing to do« or »..so I behave myself completely natural« or »..so I simply sit and drink my tea« or »..so I’m already liberated« or »..so I stop trying to meditate«. This is just »thinking about« resp. just speculation from the standpoint of ignorance. The tasks must be »implemented« and there are only two ways to implement them: as unfabricated fact or fabricated practice; actually or seemingly. Based on a complete understanding of the difference between the actual and the seemingly, the process of »conceptual reification» can be stopped resp. interrupted. This »can be« the beginning of »primordial unfabricated looseness».
 
(V) Pointing out transparency: Since primordial looseness is completely unfabricated, the reified concept of an origin or subject or object »does not matter«. It is like you have finished hard work. There is immediate-obvious no need for a moreover and immediate-obvious no need to meditate on something. All this »does not matter«. The phrase »it does not matter« is to be construed as immediate-obvious »knowledge«. It is neither the product of an special thought or insight, nor is it dependent on an special thought or insight, because obvious »knowledge« is an immediate »fact«, primordial inseparable from appearance; so »vision« respectively »form« is »like« a vivid reflection. This »primordial inseperable expression« is called »transparency«. Just leave it »de facto« as it is.
 
(VI) Decision: But how transparency is uncovered stable? That should keep one occupied for quite a while, because transparency is completely unfabricated. So »stability can’t be practiced« . But even if transparency seems to be obscured again, the fact that stability can’t be practiced is now known. This is called »path-knowledge« . So one have to make a strong »decision« and the fruit is relative stability. This can take years and decades. If transparency is relative stable, »potentiality« begins to unfold and this is the beginning of the »grand finale« .
 
(VII) Grand Finale: Without the grand finale, everything is just like dry-run. Why? If knowledge is immediate-obvious, everything appears as transparent primordial-inseperable expression of knowledge, but it doesn’t appear in that way »exactly« . There’s a gap. It behaves like in this metaphor: If you put a straw in a glas of water, he appears broken, even if you know that the straw isn’t broken. Everything seems to be covered by a thin film of ignorance. What’s “everything“? Look around. That’s »solid vision« , based on ignorance. True stability without the grand finale is not possible, because the thin ignorance-layer of solid vision always creates confusion.

Because of the unfolding potentiality of transparency, the gap must be closed and will be closed naturally, if transparency is relative stable. The thin-film of ignorance will be scraped off trough immediately obvious unfolding »exact vision« like evolving lights, rays, sounds and thigles. They are called »exact vision«, because they are an exact primordial-inseperable expression of knowledge. Remember the straw metaphor; there’s no gap anymore. Note: Exact vision appears and develop as stability develops; the two go together. If exact vision unfolds, it is mixed with solid vision. This washes the thin-film of ignorance away. At the end of this process there’s just exact vision, including your body. This can be the end of life and death. But it’s impossible to understand any of this just trough consciousness. That is why you should start with the introductions. Don’t waste your time.

 
(VIII) Excursus: Neverending Story

What seems to hide primordial transparency is the artificial image we have of ourselves and the world. The image is neither an entity nor an thing, but it pretend an reified entity or an reified thing. It is created through a process of fabrication, but when it is propagated and acted out, it can cause great harm, because it seems to be reified-identified with everything. The problem is that when we are deeply deluded we become stupid-stubborn and don’t want to let go of the lies we tell ourselves about ourselves and the neverending spectacle called life and death.
 
(IX) Excursus: Cyclic Disorders

If you have problems to fall asleep, maybe you’re frustrated because you want to fall asleep. So, you’re practicing »falling asleep« but you can’t fall asleep, because falling asleep is completely unfabricated. This is the reason why »primordial natural looseness« resp. »transparency« is immediate-obvious when you fall asleep or »die« . The fabricated state of consciousness which appears when you’re practicing »falling asleep«, has nothing to do with falling asleep. After a while, you’re too tired to practice, so you stop »practicing« and fall asleep. When you wake up again after some time, maybe you’re frustrated because you want to fall asleep. So, you’re practicing »falling asleep« but you can’t fall asleep, because falling asleep is completely unfabricated. The fabricated state of consciousness which appears when you’re practicing »falling asleep«, has nothing to do with falling asleep. After a while, you’re too tired to practice, so you stop »practicing« and fall asleep.
 
(X) Excursus: Self-deception

Some people »practice« detachment and believe in a row, they were actually »detached«. But this has obviously nothing to do with the fact that they are actually detached, otherwise they would not have to practice that. Some people »practice« mindfullness and beliefe in a row, they were actually »mindfull«. But this has obviously nothing to do with the fact that they are actually mindfull, otherwise they would not have to practice that. Some people »practice« equanimity and beliefe in a row, they were actually »equanimous«. But this has obviously nothing to do with the fact that they are actually equanimous, otherwise they would not have to practice that. From the beginning, each meditation resp. »practiced implementation« and it’s effects should be seen as a contrived product and mere speculation. If you are angry, you’re still angry even if you practice serenity. If you are greedy, you’re still greedy even if you practice humility. Tear the root of the problem directly from the soil of solidity.
 
(XI) Excursus: Shackles

This approach is not about artificial states of consciousness, in which »a subject« disappears. The emphasis is on »a«. This idea, as well as the complementary state of consciousness, is already the mistaken basic assumption respectively conceptual reification of a truly »existent« subject – which disappears in a row and no longer »exists«. This is nihilism based on eternalism. What actually ends are such conceptual reifications; thus no greedy »‘nes« appears more far and wide.
 
(XII) Excursus: Change

»Change« must take place by itself, based on actual insight. So that life and its setbacks is meant. Change on the basis of »meditation« and therefore speculation as suggestion, is just a trance-like product of imagination. This self-deception has often disastrous consequences. Some people see in this view may be a risk, because then it would ultimately futile to try to change someone. In the context of transparency and thus a broader perspective, actually any change based on ignorance is finally pointless waste of strength. This is certainly more difficult to cope with, but somehow the so-appearing cycle of life and death must go on. It’s not about change, but »actual implementation«.
 
(XIII) Excursus: Doctrines

Do nothing. Leave everything as it is. Act normal. Simply sit. Simply rest. Look at the sky. Be aware. Don’t focus. Leave your consciousness alone. These are all tasks that need to be »implemented« actually, which would be equivalent to »knowledge«. From each of these tasks you can potentially build an own doctrine and tradition. If such tasks are conceptually reified and therefore »practiced«, then this is only consistent. But every actually implemented task is equivalent to any other actually implemented task. Consequently, sectarian content and the associated spectacle doesn’t matter.

Error: “If you do nothing, not even hold on to thoughts, transparency is immediate obvious.”

This view is often represented. Not even hold on to thoughts isn’t »not doing anything«, because you not even hold on to thought’s .. right? That’s just grasping, fabrication, conceptual reification. It’s like you’re freeze into ice and lot of artificial states of consciousness such as openess or spiritual bliss or whatever are the result.
