Courage to Look at Yourself

It’s the outer view of satisfying “I” that keeps you from the vision of seeing your inner light. This vision of light only occurs when you have the courage to strictly look at yourself…

No one is chosen, but some are just more inclined to not attach to an outer view which allows for a clearer vision than if you are in the grip of a mind based “I” view. There are two existences to experience in this life and they are vastly different. One is in the direction (outward) where there‘s much self created suffering. The other is a view in the direction (inward) of non attachment. The differences in the two views is the outer view creates suffering and is done in unconscious ignorance, the inner one is lived in awareness of ignorance.

The vision of your inner light is a by product of awareness and as the selfish view is let go of, it opens up space to allow wisdom and insight to occur. This opening is directly linked to having the courage to let go of “I”; it’s the “I” that attaches and causes suffering. Ever so slowing when you have the courage to look inward the distractions of “I” fall away. This is what happened to the great mystic’s that people considered special, all they did was have the courage to look inward. This courage to look inward is available to everyone, but you will need to overcome the selfish view of “I” that keeps you distracted from the vision of your inner light which can only be seen when you have the courage look at yourself…
