“Examine your life honestly without lying to yourself. Are you able to stop your robotic repeitic life patterns if you want to? Can you stop seeking pleasure and avoiding pain? Are you addicted to certain foods, activities or past times? Are you constantly judging, blaming, criticising yourself and others? Does your mind incessantly seek out stimulus? Or are you completely fulfilled just being in silence? Do you react to how people think about you? Are you seeking approval and positive reinforcement?
Most people will experience their lives the same way today as they will tomorrow and a year from now, 10 years from now. When you begin to observe your robot like nature you become more awake. You begin to recognise the depth of the problem. You begin to see that you are lost in a dream.
Your old structure and your old identity must become the dead soil out of which new growth comes. The first step to awaking is to realise that we are identified with the matrix of the human mind, or the mask. Something within us must hear this truth and be roused from it’s slumber. There’s a part of you, something timeless that has always known the truth. Your divine essence has become enslaved. Identified with a limited self structure. The great wisdom – the truth of who you are – is buried deep within your being. Identification with the ego mind is the sickness, and samadhi is the cure.” – Samadhi Documentary.
