Take a moment to think back to when you were a young child. Remember how everything was open, interesting, mysterious, vibrant, new, and fresh? Remember how curious and joyful you felt? Remember how the world was full of endless possibility? In short, remember your innocence?
I was a seeker once. I was looking for something. I did not know what that was, but I had heard stories about enlightenment, awakening, constant bliss—I wanted that. I knew that where I was at the time wasn’t it. I had an urge to find out what the holy grail was that would make my life better in every way.
