What's required for a spiritual breakthrough?
A preparation that's a breaking up process of who we think we are.
And what helps that?
A deep determination. A 'whatever it takes' attitude with one-pointedness and wholeheartedness. An attitude of willingness.
To do what?
To have preparation, readiness.
For awakening's pleasure.
And there's pleasure in this?
Perhaps the only real one, though perhaps not from our usual standpoint.
