Bifurcation of what from what? Just asking.

Bifurcation - there are various ways to approach things post-awakening:

- Stop. You're done. Go forth and prosper. Teach what you know works. It worked for you. It is the The Way.

- Keep going. There are further layers of ignorance to penetrate. There may not ever be a thing called "done."

- It's impossible to figure this out. I'm just one tiny mind. I just don't know. I'm going with that.

And so on.

Make sense?

Also, awakening is not a destination, but a continuing process. Who knows what this conversation would be like in 10 years or if it would even occur.

Another important bifurcation:

- I can turn this off. I can shut it down. And it will go away, forever. I must practice to make that happen.
- I can't control what happens, even in the mind. Experience appears to be involuntary to a great extent. I must practice to accommodate whatever happens.

LOL reminds me of one of the more cynical passages from Jed McKenna:

"Spirituality hangs over the world like a pall, like an oily black smoke being pumped into the atmosphere by smokestacks sticking up from millions of churches and universities and monasteries and temples, from bookstands and magazine racks and websites. I look at you and I see a lifelong consumer of this smoke who now wants to get into the manufacturing and distribution end of the business." -- Jed McKenna, Spiritual Warfare.
