truth

If you need someone to talk to when shit hits the fan. I could do that.
If you need someone to go on random adventures with. I could do that.
If you need someone to sit there… just to be there? While you think? I could do that.
If you need someone to hold your hand. I could do that.
If you need someone to be laid back with. I could do that.
If you’re having a shit day and just need a friend. I could do that.
If you need a hug. I could do that too.
If you need to find that one person to stand by you. To trust. To do all those things and more
—  I could do all that too
In my experience, everyone will say they want to discover the Truth, right up until they realize that the Truth will rob them of their deepest held ideas, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. The freedom of enlightenment means much more than the experience of love and peace. It means discovering a Truth that will turn your view of self and life upside-down. For one who is truly ready, this will be unimaginably liberating. But for one who is still clinging in any way, this will be extremely challenging indeed. How does one know if they are ready? One is ready when they are willing to be absolutely consumed, when they are willing to be fuel for a fire without end.
