Realising You Have Changed
Even if we are not ‘enlightened’, knowing we’re not stuck in an old behaviour pattern is exhilarating and inspiring. Raw dharma (the practicality of discovering what we actually are) works when we put it to the test again and again. The essence of dharma is knowing our true nature and whatever obscures this.
All we have to do is drop our fixation with the ideas of others
that only led us to confusion and unhappiness.
Realisation of our true nature breaks down the facade and life remains ordinary and without affectation. Realisation merely helps us to live through the residue of old habits that have caused suffering.
