to be ordinary us to be extraordinary, trying to be extraordinary is to be ordinary..as long as the i-disease is there , there is no peace, I-me-mine is the obstruction..one can be aware f it, not get rid of it or anything,  witnessing consciousness is all there is..all the rest are concepts..its a conceptual cosmos emerging out of the void!

Hi,
My observation is that master is saying this after going through his own spiritual practices for long time and new person is just starting.. So, for new person to just follow blindly with the attitude that no practice is needed to achieve nirvana will not be very helpful.. Just my 2 cets..

 Person's can achieve relative 'peace' or 'freedom', person(personae) means mask, a concept if you wish, so it is not possible to get anywhere or achieve anything like that  hence freedom is from the notion of person-hood with which one identifies, so 'practice' to be are of be identified with what is not so, or what is false or merely conceptual at so many levels, that awareness of dis-identifying with the conditioned self is 'required' not as a 'doer' then the veils are removed one by one  or like an onion, peals are removed and in the end there is no-thing there..it is an effortless effort..any way these are more words!
