“At some point, one tires of walking in the circles of ignorance, because one becomes aware that one’s actions generate more and more suffering each time. One sees oneself stuck in the same place, and feels a sincere willingness to go beyond this place and to free oneself of all lies and self-deceit. So one says: ‘I want to know what my responsibility is in this game. Why do I keep repeating the same negative situations? Why am I always falling in the same hole?’ At this moment, one commits oneself to the truth, as much as it may hurt one’s vanity.”
Sri Prem Baba
Ignorance is King | August 1, 2014
Ignorance is like the king, and clinging attachment and hostility are his ministers. To rid ourselves of the king's minions we must get rid of the king. And so it is of greatest importance to identify ignorance properly.
