A Journey In Consciousness

Be yourself

After 40 years of meditation and spirituality what I have mostly found is my humanity and vulnerability. I know that often people come to the spiritual world because they seek protection from the many harsh aspects of life, some kind of a magic imperviousness, they are looking for super powers, trying to become Superman. This I have not found at all, even though the natural arising of detachment seems rather helpful.

When we allow ourselves to just be who we are, not copying or pretending to be Buddha, Christ or some powerful shaman, then this vulnerability carries its own strength. But we never become infallible and in that process we do not find perfection. We become more human than ever.
