But listen to me, this is it, when you’re at that point, that’s what you’ll truly digging for, that’s where the nuggets of soul gold are buried: because it’s where we buy into the illusion, and make the suffering real. But once you realise this dynamic, then you can explode the myth of anything that might hold you. When you’ve been into the desert just once, and truly challenged the need for any kind of outcome: for food, for sleep, for resources, for shelter, for relationship, for love, then you will burst that bubble, you will explode that myth. When you’re in the midst of the pain, be it physical, emotional or mental, where the intensity is at its zenith, that’s where the opportunity lies. Seek it out, with all the courage and will you can muster. Let the quest for the no answer forge your fearless soul.
