FREEDOM FROM SUFFERING - PART 2

Most seekers embark on the search through the desire is be free of suffering and abide in the freedom of the natural state. At the initial stages, when identified with the person, the desire may be at a personal level -- to become enlightened, change the world, become a successful and famous spiritual teacher, to be free from the problems of the relative. In other words, the desire is to gain something at a personal level. 


When the seeker is ripe or ready, these personal desires drop away. Instead, there is simply the burning and earnest desire to know the Self and be free of suffering. This series will offer the direct path pointers on how to be free from suffering -- permanently.




STEP #1: 
Questioner: "Have I not suffered enough?" 


Nisargadatta: "Suffering has made you dull, unable to see its enormity. Your first task is to see the sorrow in you and around you ... " 


STEP #2:
... your next is to long intensely for liberation. The very intensity of longing will guide you; you need no other guide." 


Step 3 to follow tomorrow.


Thank you to Michael Langford for this three-step quote selection.


Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
