That the path is filled with light and they just have to follow it to reach The Divine. Although many false Gurus might want you to believe that, if you really wish to be awakened, you will have to give up on that notion entirely.
Awakening is difficult,
it is cruel and messy, and there is no roundabout way to reach that
point without getting yourself dirty first.
And even if we do come to our senses and realize the truth, more often than not, we are unwilling to give up those lies.
It is far too comfortable
to gloat thinking that you are awakened just because of your
insight. But true awakening comes when we are able to dismantle
ourselves completely and give up all the lies and can finally begin
the process of rebuilding ourselves.
We put up so much resistance because we are rigid to this self-identity. But we forget that it too is based on falsities.
For us to begin the process of awakening, we will have to surrender completely this sense of self and give ourselves up to the oblivion of not knowing who we are. This does not come easy and it gets very painful and harsh to deal with so much.
But, overwhelming as it
might be, it is the first step and we have to take the leap.
This, in itself, is enough to crush anyone but yet we keep fighting against that sense that nothing we believed in was true. And it is a difficult fight indeed because you can never win.
The only option you have
is to give in to the suffering. Once you stop fighting what is
inevitable and embrace the oblivion, you can finally move on from
the last shreds of embellishments and lies.
But if you hold on, one day, light will return to your life. And when you step into this light, you will finally begin to see sense. Where initially you thought you were empty and barren, you will find an eternal spring of love.
This love is what
connects all beings in the Universe and runs through each one of us.
You will at once feel like the part of everything and at the same
time at a distance to everything.
Your greatest enemy is your mind which has been under so many illusions that it can no longer tell what the truth is and what it is not. Not just that, but there are no friends or loved ones who can travel the path with you because they themselves are disillusioned.
Your only tools are your confidence and bravery. Unless you are ready to destroy yourself, you will not be able to find yourself. You will be tested beyond your endurance and not many can survive it.
So think about it.
Are you ready to give
what it takes and never back down from your mission, no matter
