No Longer a Seeker
Former Seeker: Dear James, I’ve been meaning to write you again, but I know how massively busy you’ve become, and also I don’t really have any important questions anymore. The knowledge becomes a little more “hard and fast” as time goes by and I keep practicing shravana, manana and nididhyasana. I find that the karma yoga attitude has been enormously helpful and it really proved to be a “missing” piece to the puzzle for me. Nowadays, I don’t consider myself a seeker anymore, just a lover of Vedanta and the traditional teaching. So I keep reading and studying simply because I enjoy it and apparently have a deep vasana for it, and no longer because I am looking for “answers.”
Isvara willing, I’ll be attending your Berkeley satsang again in July. My wife is also a big fan of yours and wants to come along this time. We’ve been listening to the Vedanta Full Set together as she works through How to Attain Enlightenment on her own, so we’re both looking forward to seeing you in Berkeley this summer. ☺
James: I’m so happy that you are enjoying the benefits of karma yoga. I particularly liked your statement that you don’t consider yourself a seeker anymore. Once you have heard Vedanta, you can’t continue to seek, unless you weren’t listening. Now it is just a matter of removing a few misconceptions – if there are any – and/or uprooting some tendencies that might stand in the way of complete satisfaction. I look forward to seeing you in Berkeley. My best regards to your wife, and ShiningWorld thanks you for the donation. I’ll contact you when the book is printed to get your address so I can send you copies.
~ Love, James
