I wanted to share these insightful words of wisdom from a wonderful book that I read called the Instruction Manual for Recieving God by Jason Shulman.
It’s a simple to digest book and highly recommended.
The hard work of truly awakening involves getting a clear idea of just how much of life we cannot bear.
We need to see how limited we really are. Then we will have the chance to meet God in reality and not in the fateful fantasy of saving or punishing ourselves.
The real self is not found in the movies or on the stage. It is not in books and has no script.
It is filled with surprise entrances and sometimes inexplicable exits.
All of this is OK.
It takes practice to let go of some limited idea of perfection or goodness. God is not a reward. God is your own miserable, magnificent self.
