Drop the “why” in your life and the incessant desire to extract meaning out of everything. Just for a day treat everything as preordained no matter how uncomfortable, and stop feeding the impulse to formulate and construct answers for your perceived problems. Let’s practice starving this intense urge to involve our self so personally in the mind/body phenomenon of our lives.
lol, ok. The truth is we just do not feel safe. We truly believe “perhaps I am not taken care of.” Even the best childhood validates this notion as we all experience trauma on some level. We are seeking unconditional love now as a result, from what we call the Self, God, Universe, Love etc. We were all ripped from the womb of infinity; and we simply just want our mother.
The diverse teachings all point to different parts of this evolution. The first part: seek yourself in things. Create an identity, a persona and be someone in this life. Defend and prop up this me. The second, stop seeking your life in things as this is the cause for suffering and inquire into the source of things. Third, once a glimpse is caught of the Absolute, then seek that to the exclusion of all other things. Fourth, once absorbed into the absolute and exclusive identity is erased, one senses them self in all things, times and places. Then one seeks to drop back into their humanity, re-inherit the personality and explode from the center.
