Do you want to become spiritually awoken? Then stop waiting for someone to do-it-to-you!

Thought is free - real thought of the real self is utterly free and true. We can know what we need to know directly and unmediated, and such knowledge is of universal and permanent effect. This is precisely what the demonic powers need to ignore, confuse and deny. The individual awakening to reality - that is the unit of awakening. The only mass awakening can be a mass of individuals - but nobody and nothing can make this happen. It can only happen by a multitude of individual decisions - decisions made in full consciousness and explicitly. Thus nothing can cause an awakening; and, although awakening can be made difficult, nothing can prevent it. The next step is up-to each and every one of us; and the sooner we stop looking to someone or something else to do it to us - the faster it can happen.

Bruce, I agree that awakening is up to each individual. But I am sometimes unclear as how you write about the process of getting there. The way I understand awakening to be (probably in a more eastern mystical sense) is that it goes beyond thought. So we can't think our way out of it, but we must come to see the nature of thought. That frees us up to engage right thoughts and not be reactive to bad thoughts. Would this be another way as to how you see awakening to be?

@ted - No - it's not that.

The best way to explain is to look at what I have written on Primary Thinking
