Can Ignorance Come Back?
Hein: Once ignorance has gone, can it come back?
Though it’s true that your seeking has ended, this does not necessary mean that the ignorance has been removed up to the point whereby “full liberation” has been actualised. Ignorance is hardwired and super sly; it takes time to uproot its bondage.
Continue to gently apply and expose the mind to the teachings whilst getting on with your jiva duty. The knowledge will firm up in its own time. No rush, no pressure, you’re doing fantastic, Hein.
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
