Remove distraction. No newspapers or magazines, no TV, no candy cookies and sweets, no sex, no cuddling, the reading anything while you eat or sit on the toilet, no movies, no conversation that is an about truth, love, for the divine.
You are entirely responsible for cutting through your own laziness, addictions, and unclarity. There is nothing to wait for nobody to blame.
Whatever techniques are appropriate use them: Talk with your friends, use therapy, practice meditation or prayer, go on a VisionQuest, go on a hike, read a book, read scripture, walk in nature, keep a journal, study with the teacher. It really doesn’t matter what you choose, what matters is your actual commitment to discovering the deepest truth and aligning your life with it.
Do whatever you have to do to cut through the dullness in your life.
Almost everything you do you do because you are afraid to die. And yet that is exactly what you are doing from the moment you are born. And so you spend two hours watching the Super Bowl telecast, it’s a great game, and a good distraction, but the fact remains you have something here you’re supposed to do, something you’re supposed to give. Give it.
