We keep closing off the door of entry to a higher state of consciousness because of the fear of the implications of a true spiritual journey. We have embarked on a game that is much more profound than we usually think we are in, and we’re ready to slip by and make everybody feel good. As in the metaphor for the Bhagavad Gita, Arjun fights an army of attachments: attachment to family, to a secure and comfortable life, to the prestige of habit and comfort, to shine in society, they may have served as guides and teachers in the past but they have been part of what has kept us from God.
“Meditation is the highest form of prayer. In it you are so close to god that you don’t need to say a thing. It is just great to be together.”
