Beware the Demon of Objectivity

An objective, critical stance is ok if you’re working on an academic project, but it becomes an overpowering obstacle if you’re working towards an interior frame of mind. Please understand, there is no possibility of living the inner-life in conjunction with the Unborn when you’re riding side-saddle with an obstruction like critical analysis–it will become an objective demon that is diametrically opposed to your pursuit of self-realization. Objectivity has its place, in particular when studying the Doctrine of the Dharma, but it will become an absolute hindrance with the better part that is the experiential quotient which must remain dominant if authentic-growth is to occur unhindered. So, resist the conflict of being betwixt the two and happily place both in proper perspective
