own eyes, you will believe the art of liars, and you attempt to believe that your eyes were lieing to you.
When I speak of research, I don't necessarily mean reaearch in books or on the internet. I speak of research within the soul... from guides, totems,
and the such. I speak of research from someone else who has experienced what you have questions about.
Published text, be it in a book or on a website, often contains half-truths and lies. In the course of spiritual research, you must find who you
trust, and learn from them.
Those people who need assistance to realize things, are the majority of people. They have no place in extraordinary events, they should live
their simple life undisturbed.
If a person is not ready for his own performance he is willing to carry out, he should leave that behind and stay whatever he was before. In order to
do something great, a person must challenge the difficulties of life alone, without seeking help. However, some people win, some loose and crumble.
Not the matter of luck, it's a matter of courage and faith.
During one's awakening, one often needs help to realize who they are, what they are, and what they can do. It's part of the learning process. This
should never exclude them from experiencing what they can.
Before one's awakening, that person is never ready for what is to come. The awakening is the process by which one becomes aware of who they are and
what they can do.
I, myself, was never prepared for what would happen to me. If you asked me at age 15 if I knew who I was, I would have given you a completely
different answer than I would have after my awakening at age 16. Now that I am almost 30 years old, and quite aware of what I am, who I am, and what
I'm capable of, I ask you.... should I have never explored the realms that eventually brought me to my awakening, and later to the knowledge I know
now? At age 15, I was not ready for what I was to become (or rather, realize what I already was). However, I felt a course of action necessary, and
delved into it. A year later, I awakened. A week after my awakening, I still doubt my readiness, as I was looking to have myself committed.
However, now, almost 14 years after my awakening, the course I am on is a course I doubt I could live without. Just because one is not ready, does
not mean they should not pursue a course. In a spiritual sense, you will never learn or comprehend what you are not ready for, but when you are
ready, expect to glean great knowledge from it.
We all need help during our spiritual path. Without help, none of us would ever grow. If we do not grow, we don't learn, and if we don't learn, we
can never realize our potential. It is all a matter of faith and courage. But help aids in bringing that about. It is the faith and courage that
enables us to progress, but without help, it is all fruitless.
