Can the ego ever consent to its own destruction?
Is there ever informed consent for awakening?
Because the grasping ego is like a victim of Stockholm Syndrome
Conditioned into loving its own captivity
It’s a false consciousness
That needs rescuing
But it’s only the true consciousness that can do this
Only awareness itself
The true identity
That can throw off the garb of delusion
So beware of gurus
Who want to smash your ego
On their timescale
When the fruit is ripe
It falls from the tree
Take all the time you need
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished”.
