“ With your actions, if you are turning yourself against yourself, because you do things senselessly & you are not doing things by choice simply because you have given in to a certain aspect of your body or emotion or something, then definitely you will bring suffering to yourself ”
Spiritual process means life is happening in its fullest and most vibrant dimension - not just physically, mentally, and emotionally - on all levels
Entering the spiritual path means you have become conscious of your suffering
If you remain a compulsive creature, you cannot call yourself a full-fledged human being, only when you are able to do everything by choice can you call yourself a human being
Very few people transcend out of their intelligence, most people have to be thrashed by life; only then they will transcend
You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.
