Can’t Get Off the Bus
Seeker: Ramji, I wanted to touch base to tell you I have begun what I can only describe as a slow extrication process. I turned off my Facebook account, which lifted a huge weight. The less needy I become the more folks seem to be drawn to me as a source of guidance. I guess that's natural. I am also severely limiting my contact with women who are trying to get my attention. Food is an ongoing battle, but one step at a time. I still have plenty of rajas and tamas but I am starting to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of a life removed from mindlessly acting out blind desires. Everything the scripture says will happen is happening. Not right away, but it's clear there is no getting off the bus. So I feel like I can relax and just go with the flow.
Even the super subtle feeling of pride in having realized the truth feels like a limiting thought, ego trying to claim awareness as an accomplishment. Why would I need to feel better than someone else if I feel good enough as it is?
A deep well of love and is-ness has been uncovered. It's a very beautiful thing. So as it stands, I feel like I understand the essence of the Gita.
