"The path
to spiritual awakening
really does not have to be

You simply
with an open mind
find the practices
that you experience
a greater awakening
into bliss
and you practice them.

You should try everything;
from breathing exercises,
to mantra, to chanting
to various methods of meditation
and everything in between.

And when you find practices
that help awaken
the bliss that is beyond
all beliefs and ideas
then you follow those practices.

You give yourself
to them.

Perhaps at first
you do not feel bliss,
perhaps at first it is difficult,
it is challenging,
it is uncomfortable.

But somewhere in sticking with it,
you might recognize
something profound happening,
something very subtle
awakening inside you
that attracts you
and that attraction
will lead you to bliss.

And once you find ways
to awaken the bliss
you are home free.

Then the door is open
to your awakening.

Whether you find it
in repeating the name of a Guru,
repeating a mantra,
breathing a certain way,
practicing a certain
meditation technique,

no matter what it is
if it awakens the bliss
then all the teachings
will not matter.

All of the different philosophies
and spiritual debates
will become obsolete.

All of your problems and worries
will no longer affect you
in the same way.

Because you have found
a method to awaken the bliss
and that bliss transcends everything.

And simply by being in that bliss,
everything gets done,
everything gets taken care of.
It nurtures you and loves you
like no person ever can.

Just by giving your full attention to bliss,
or to the practice that awakens the bliss,
you are fulfilled.

But don't give it halfway.

Don't give your attention
a back door
to slip away
back into doubts
and intellectual debate.

give yourself to the practice
until there is nothing
left to give.
Until even the practice goes.
Even the bliss may go.

And then there is only what is.
The simplicity of the moment.

And that is even more
delightful than the bliss.
