IT LOOKS EASY BUT, ACTUALLY, IT’S QUITE HARD

I talk a lot about the “true self” –
Because as soon as you discover your “true self” – you’ll be “enlightened!”

It’s both the easiest, as well as the hardest, thing in the world to accomplish –
To give up your false self – your ego –
In order to find your “true self” –
That is, the individual you were born to be.

It’s what Jesus eventually came to understand –
That your old self has to “die” in order for your “true self” to come fully to life.

A MYSTICAL DEATH

A “mystical death” entails dying to one’s false self –
That is, to the “ego,” and becoming “enlightened.”

This is difficult to do, however, because most of us
Have never known anything else.

It’s a death-defying “leap”
Out of a cherished, comfortable, and manipulable ego
Into an evanescent and ecstatic “true self.”

Listen, before jumping –
Don’t bother even thinking about it –

Since, in truth, in order to “come alive,”
You simply have to “do it”!
