“Whereas ordinary information is ‘acquired’ by effort, in spiritual endeavor the emphasis is on relinquishing, letting go, and surrendering. The ‘work’ involves identifying positionalities and then transcending the ego’s resistances and relinquishing its illusory control or sovereignty.
Thus, the core of spiritual work is aligned with undoing and the unloading of the mind rather than its enrichment.”
The best way to get your peace of mind is not to get anything, that is the irony.
It is to let go of all the gotten you’ve been holding onto.
