“With humility comes the willingness to stop trying to control or change other people or life situations or events ostensibly 'for their own good'. To be a committed spiritual seeker, it is necessary to relinquish the desire to be 'right' or of imaginary value to society. In fact, nobody's ego or belief systems are of any value to society at all. The world is neither good nor bad nor defective, nor is it in need of help or modification because its appearance is only a projection of one's own mind. No such world exists.”
― David R. Hawkins
How you relate to the issue IS the issue.
We take in the world and we process it's meaning inside of us. We think "out there" is real and it is something to defend or control or something we are a victim of.
The great secret is that we are the Holy Grail, we hold the sanctity of the Kingdom of Heaven inside of us.
Climb the mountains inside and go through the doors to Shangri La.
All else will fall away and the Truth with set you free.
