Where will you find God? Where will you experience the Divine? Where will you make your pilgrimage? Which holy site will bring you peace and liberation?
All that you seek lies within. The great Indian mystic and yogi Vivekananda said, “Knowing God is the aim and goal of all human life.” To know ones Self is to know God. Only Self realization will bring an end to suffering. Only truth of your essential nature will bring liberation.
Where do you begin?
Where you are.
There must first be the desire. You must have the desire to know who you are. Then you must be unfailingly devoted to realizing your essential nature. It requires dedication and discipline. The discipline to stay the course even when it disappears beneath your feet, when the fear becomes a tempest and the collapse of the ego heralds your demise. It requires nothing less then a resolve that cannot be deterred or defeated, a fearlessness born of faith.
In other words you must become a warrior. Single focused, noble in your cause and noble in your action. Your quest will lead you to a humbling realm, a place where you will experience the inexplicable greatness of your being. All your self importance will dissolve instantaneously. The illusional separation will cease and you will know the truth. All is One, One is All.
