How strong is your fire for Liberation?

In Vedanta we call this Mumukshuta, which means “yearning for final liberation.” If you are not getting results from your spiritual studies, either A) what you are studying is not the ultimate truth or B) your desire for ultimate truth is not hot enough, not focused enough. A light spread out is diffuse and not nearly as powerful as a concentrated light (e.g., a light bulb vs. a laser).

If I am still interested in attaining worldly desires then naturally my fire for liberation will not be very strong. So, in your heart of hearts, where is your true allegiance? To the world (reflected ever-changing Brahman which comes and goes) or to the Source inside you (changeless eternal Brahman which has never come or gone)?

Your honest answer tells you everything.
