All the talk about awakening, enlightenment, self-improvement, whatever. Maybe ask yourself this question instead. “What would I have to feel if I stopped seeking?” The great thing about the question is that the answer doesn’t come from the mind. If you stop for one moment, whatever you are trying to avoid feeling is right there. And allowing it to be as it is, without all the words and pictures on it, also allows it to shift and release. So then what is there to seek after that, if the entire movement of seeking was only to avoid THAT? Keep the search simple. Instead of entertaining what life would be like if you reached some place in the future, find how what you are avoiding now.
