Why should I awaken?

“What is the point of awakening if we are just going to return to our bodies with the same old problems and ordinary life?”

Perhaps for many, the idea of awakening has always been a subtle desire to escape from the human condition with all its mental and physical discomforts, uncertainties, boredom, ordinariness, and lack of fulfillment and sense of purpose. But can a problem really be understood from a distance, or must we come in direct intimate contact with it in order to understand its nature? There are problems in our humanity and no sensitive person would deny that. Awakening is an awakening to the inherent balancing principle that resides in the human heart. It is this grace alone that is capable of solving all our problems. Therefore, seek That to the exclusion of all other things to obtain the master key.
