make a journey
We have all kinds of ideas about who we are and we spend our whole life realizing bit by bit that none of those ideas seems to be true. We somehow become very confused and extremely desperate. Most people choose to ignore that fact altogether and try to push through with so much struggle. That struggle all manifests in their inner life and their relationship with others.
However, there are also people who choose to surrender and accept the fact that their ideas of life need to be put aside. Then they begin to make a journey—a journey of their own discoveries in order to realize what life really means. It is a lonely journey because it is all about our individual, direct experience which cannot be told and predicted by anyone and cannot be found in any books or any spiritual traditions.
