Master, Can You Not Journey With People For Free? - Siddha Performance
S: What is the Truth, Master?

M: If I tell you, you will consider it. As you consider it, you will either believe or not believe. If you believe it, you will not have understood. If you do not believe it, you will not have understood.

...

S: I still would like to hear it.

M: I have no interest in wasting my words, student. Curiosity does not inspire me to reveal anything to anyone.

...

S: I am frustrated . . . And also envious, Master. In a way, I find myself angry with you. You have done nothing to me. But I am frustrated that I have not found the answers, despite years of effort. And I am angry and envious that you have. Why should these come to you and not to me? Please forgive me, Master.

...

S: Then why does the Truth come to you and not to me?

M: Because I am more serious than you.

S: That is indeed head-on. The universe does not give lee way, I suppose.

M: Why should it, student? Why should it give its most glorious riches to one who is not sufficiently sincere? This world is full of pretenders, my student. Every day they beg to have an audience with me. They say lofty things. They feign sincerity. If I agree to seem them and begin to speak of what it will take to realize the Truth, they make all kinds of excuses. They cannot do this. They cannot do that. They will have to wait until the time is right. Someday they will return. True sincerity, being All-in, the willingness to beg, borrow, and steal if one must . . . Such humans are one in a million, student. One in a million.

The Place You So Desperately Want To Go - Siddha Performance
I will only say this, and I will say it with softness in my voice and sincerity in my heart:

What If There Was A Way Out Of All This?

Not happiness. Not meditation. Not mindfulness. Not positive thinking. Not yoga. Not retreats. Not motivation. Not prayer. Not incense. Not gratitude. Not anything that the feel-good, cosmetic, trite, insincere, derivative, impotent, and unoriginal society has told you.

...

If life has taught me anything, it is that there are no coincidences.

There is a cosmic and universal reason that I’ve spoken these words.

And more importantly, there is a cosmic and universal reason that of the 7.5 Billion people on Earth, I just happened to be speaking these words to YOU.

How Our Minds Mislead Us: The Marvels and Flaws of Our Intuition – Brain Pickings
“The confidence people have in their beliefs is not a measure of the quality of evidence but of the coherence of the story that the mind has managed to construct.”
