Why do some of us seek enlightenment?
It may be to avoid suffering. Or to find peace/love/joy. Or from love of love and truth, and a wish to live from love and truth.
It can also be to seek the ultimate approval – from life, Universe, God, and then also other people. To gain respect, love, and confirmation that I am OK.
None of these are wrong. It’s very natural, and very human.
And it’s good to notice.
How is it to give myself – here and now – what I seek?
Is it true that what I am seeking is not already here?
When I look, can I find what I seek for – outside of words, images, and sensations? Is it findable?
Note: I don’t resonate so much with the words, and only slightly to what it points to.
– avoid suffering, find peace/love/joy
– also, seeking the ultimate approval – from life, Universe, God, then also people (respect, love, that you are OK)
