How to do better than Just Fine

A brave client recently came to the forum.  This individual introduced himself by writing that he'd already seen through the illusion of self , then very carefully described the process of how it happened as well as the ways in which his day to day perspective had changed since this significant shift had occurred.

What I immediately noticed was that he did not describe his experiences using the same language or well-worn phrases I would have, and yet what he wrote resonated very strongly.  The words he used surrounding this description of waking up was so different from my own, though, that I found myself waffling back and forth between resonance and doubt, and sometimes wondering whether his experience was the "IT" everyone talked so much about.

Thankfully, I caught that mistake.

What's important.. no...  What's KEY is to trust your own awakening and no one else's.  If what has happened "to you" brings an undeniable peace and new understanding of life, or allows for a more holistic view of the world, stop doubting it, at least for a while.  Is there further to go?  Maybe.  But then again, fully and enthusiastically entertain the possibility that there is not.  The difference between your awakening and everyone else's... including that teacher you marvel at... may just be a matter of language.


Stop doubting.  Stop looking and comparing.

Just stop.

You are more than just fine.
