Be willing to judge the ego’s thought system with perfect honesty.

The world isn’t here to make you happy; rather, to make you conscious.

When problems arise, our minds tell us that they ought not be happening. Plans fail, then we feel unjustly trapped within a life that we ought not have. Love relationships fail to deliver salvation, so we feel as though we are with the wrong partner.

If life isn’t easy, it is by design. Challenges push us toward awakening. The failure, the suffering, it is there to push us further. If a bit of suffering doesn’t inspire growth, we are given more. Cling to ego and the suffering escalates even more.

To go beyond suffering is to experience a holy instant — an awakening to the eternal present moment, an acceptance of all that is, a decision to trade all fear for complete faith in perfect love. Awakening first happens in an instant and then, by then establishing a daily spiritual practice, can last forever.

The world shows us everything consciousness is not so that, through contrast, we can know what it is. Consciousness wants to come into this world through us — carrying with it the divine knowledge and lasting bliss of perfect love. Our challenges are not problems at all; rather, only powerful reminders to go deeply into consciousness.
