So our goal should be God. A Long path. On rare occasions, a minority number of people may have access to a true Guru. Only a handful of them will be blessed with an awakening Ref Gita
Chapter 7. Verse 3
Without an awakening one cannot leave. But what is worse is that even those with an awakening, only a few may escape.
Why is that?
Their own mind creating doubts. And they end up debating or battling the mind. Instead stop the internal hankering and just go straight within.
The doubts of mind – dogs
Hankerings – throwing stones
But this is equally true for real life. Don’t let the critics – your friends , spouse, enemies bother you
