“Not seeking, not expecting, she is present, and can welcome all things.”
― Lao Tzu
The more you search for the ultimate, the more you go away from it.
When The Spiritual Journey Begins
WHEN YOU ARE NEITHER OF THE WORLD NOR OF THE HEAVENS
Sometimes you feel that you don’t fit into this world. You can’t go back to your mundane activities. Neither can you say that you have gained awakening nor that you’re not interested in it. You are Just in the middle.
You will continue to seek further. Not because you are interested in seeking but because a habit has formed in you. This is edging you towards seeking. Something inside you says, “Move on just a little bit and there you will find what you’re looking for”.
However, this will only tire you. In this stage it is very important that you get tired out completely.
Seeking will only take you away from the divine. AND NOW YOU DISCOVER ANOTHER FACT:
The ultimate has never been apart from you. It cannot leave you. It is your very core. Just due to your ignorance you ‘feel’, you have gone away from it… TOO FAR.
At this stage you realize that seeking is useless.
If you are reading this article and you are now on this line, You are definitely NOT FINDING what you’re looking for.
Spiritual Awakening is not about NOT SEEKING. It is about NOT FINDING.
If you find it, you have NOT FOUND it. Are you able to see what I am saying?
There is nothing to find. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO FIND. And interestingly therefore, there’s nothing to seek. If you understand what I mean, then I bow to you!
