To live truly, we must understand the nature of reality as it is. Reality is the creation of our perception and unless we can understand its nature, we will never be awakened to the truth. It’s hard to tear down the very nature of reality. We have been attached to it for years. We have been prisoners of our minds and programming since childhood. We are so used to being part of the crowd, that we find safety and comfort in that crowd. With spiritual awakening, we see the light of our individuality for the first time.
It takes great courage to walk this path. There must be so much willingness to find the true self and it is not a straight path. However, if we allow it to unfold with compassion and self-love, all of our limitations and boundaries will fall apart, and we will experience our connected and non-dual selves. There, we will notice the separation and unity simultaneously. We will still maintain our identity, but we know the very nature of our existence. We are no longer slaves; prisoners of our identity and our goal to find happiness. Awakening is not positive thinking. It is not a goal to achieve. It is a process- an organic movement into our true nature and freedom from any limitations of identity. It is the process of becoming the masters of our own lives.
