“There is a phrase that says, ‘We need to be woke.’ But I want to add something to that, that said Nina Simone said. Nina Simone said, ‘It’s not the waking, it’s the rising.’ You can be woke and still in the bed. You’ve got to get woke and get up, out of the bed, out of the apathy.”

Culadasa -The 5 ultimate insights that lead to direct awakening. - YouTube
- Impermanence
- Emptiness
- Causal interdependence of all phenomena
- The nature of suffering
- The illusoriness of a separate self.

The fifth, insight into no-self, is the culminating insight that actually brings enlightenment.

As long as we cling to the notion of self, the implications of the other insights are deeply disturbing.

From this point forward, you will increasingly have insight experiences that can trigger the kind of insight that leads to awakening.

As insight accumulates, your understanding of yourself increases.

Meditation, insight, and rationality. (Part 2 of 3) - Less Wrong
a highly abridged history of meditation in one Buddhist-associated tradition and of models of the path towards enlightenment (from its ancient Buddhist roots to the modern day), and then a short-but-explicit set of instructions which an interested individual can use to see for themselves whether this style of meditation leads to what I have claimed it does.
