Because (4) 



Understand that in the relative journey, because of your dependency, you are not calm, you are upset.  Your dependency will eventually become a nightmare, which keeps you in fear in daily life.

Understand that, when the ego is there in the relative journey, because it has to be there, you cannot do anything about it. Others are there in this relative journey with their ego. 

Have you noticed how much dependency surrounds the ego? Just two egos are enough in a house. You must understand how much interdependency there is on so many things. 

You are dependent, your love is dependent and your being kind is dependent on somebody telling you, you’re kind. Everything is inter-dependent. And in so many ways this dependency disappears. 

Understand that along with dependency your dreams go too. Have you noticed that? If this is the relative journey, where does that place you to have a clear understanding as to how the shift into the absolute journey could happen?

Understand that the moment ‘I’ is there, there is a crowd of conditions in you. You are not alone. Understand, the moment you use the word ‘because’, conditions come flooding in the mind. 

Understand that your happiness is destroyed because of conditions?  You are upset because of conditions? You are unhappy because of conditions? You are sad because of conditions? 

You are not having a good time because of conditions?  You are feeling uncomfortable because of conditions?  Because. Because. Because. Because. Because.

Understand that you are convinced conditions are there and, because of them, you are in that state of mind in the relative journey. My goodness. And each one is thinking the same way. 

When deep understanding of daily life happens to you that what is meant to happen to you will happen and no force on earth can stop it, you will be in the absolute journey of your daily life. 

When deep understanding of daily life happens to you that what is happening to you cannot be other than what is happening to you, you will be in the absolute journey of your daily life.

The enlightened embrace the daily life that happens to them

Editor’s Note:
Yes, the absolute journey. What a wonder is this absolute journey. How the light of the enlightened is bringing it so close. This is man’s birthright revealed, not as a dream for the imagination to feed on. It is being alone; yet a friendship. It is not a lonely place in existence with needs. Man was born alone. Man, whose daily life has been dependent, may come to understand being alone, if he is meant to. He may come to embrace daily life however it comes to him, if he is meant to.
