The truth shall set you free
…and it’ll hurt and break every bone in your body.
It’ll put you in solitary confinement, torture you in ways that you won’t comprehend. At multiple times, it will make you go mad. It won’t let you function. Ultimately but, like the end of a long prison sentence, it will set you free. Freedom is guaranteed. I can personally guarantee you that.
All you have to do is stay strong, if you can’t keep calm and not succumb to the pain and the suffering.
Waking up is a metamorphosis. It’ll be ugly and it’ll be full of struggle. It’ll make you arrogant. Your self, your ego will assert itself the strongest. It’ll seduce you. It is Satan, it is Mara. It’ll tempt you. You can be the king of the world or 100,000 people or something like that. You can be a master.
You’ll start feeling your cocoon. You’ll start waking up to the nature of your self, your ego, your mind and your thought. Your sins, desires and all the knots you have tied will make your struggle difficult. Your cocoon will cling to every nanometer of your skin. It will take time and it will be painful.
If you give up in between, you’ll be a stunted, distorted version that’ll just wither away and die. If you keep going, inch by inch, day by day, you will break out of your cocoon.
No one can help you because if they do, you will be a stunted, distorted version of your human potential. That’s why don’t follow. Your struggle is your own and so are your rewards.
You can’t force people into metamorphosis and you can’t make it easy. All you can do is to tell them that it’s okay. I’m telling you that it is okay. You are alive and it is okay. Know it. Know that in a far corner of the world I’m here and I love you. I’m telling you it is okay. Know that there are so many of us waking up. You know that getting organised, forming a community and trying to change the world will only lead to violence.
You know the dream. Everyone knows the dream. Everyone has dreamt that dream. The common human dream that’s beautiful, that’s pure, that’s full of love, compassion and happiness. You know it is possible. You know we’ll get there. Not by revolution, not by spreading the message.
The truth threatens the very fabric of the society and every time you try, everyone else’s response will range from mild annoyance, to incredulence, to ridicule, to even murder. We fear what we don’t understand. They won’t understand and they’ll fear you. They are larvae and they think this is it. They are happy in their own way. Their metamorphosis hasn’t begun. It’s not your responsibility. Your salvation is your responsibility. Your existence is your responsibility.
Survive because it is. Survive because you are divine. You are metamorphosing into something beautiful. You weren’t asleep, you were hibernating, surviving so you could get here.
Ego/Self is there because it helped you survive throughout the history of your evolution, through all your lives – the ones you remember and the ones you don’t. Each step towards the truth was filled with shedding ignorance and gaining knowledge.
The observer and the observed are the same. It is itself, by itself, for itself. You are it.
