(44) Spiritual Prosperity

SpiritualProperity

Are you one who freely chooses your actions based on right knowledge of self?

Or are you someone who is merely chosen by the actions of others in relation to what you conceive as self?

Think about this carefully…

As it explains much of where and what you are presently in this artificial continuum of ever-changing conditions.

In the end none of your worldly accomplishments or failures means anything at all…

In fact, if this arisen set of dreams in your mind is not completely transcended…

The wheel of karma will continue to endlessly spin in various positions and combinations…

Of which none is of any absolute importance to your own self despite those desires and things and dreams you have conditioned yourself to treasure most…

The one caught in the prison of the body consciousness walks through this world as in a dream, which sometimes is good and sometimes bad…

Thus it should be clear, beyond any shred of a doubt…

That anyone, who avoids drinking, from the clear and fresh well of noble wisdom…

Will most certainly die from thirst in the unforgivable desert of ignorance….

If you seek to understand anything about yourself, understand this…

When it comes to your-self…

There is no language, no thoughts, no words, no deeds and no feelings that ultimately and with absolute certainty can answer…

Who or what you truly are….

And with these set of mere conditions put aside…

How are you…

To value anything at all…

In the dim light…

Of even a single drop, of self ignorance?

Thus, when the Mind releases itself from its images of desire and ignorance,

It is transformed into a shining and positionless body…

Of true…

Spiritual prosperity.
