Q: What’s the biggest mistake seekers make on the spiritual path?

MICHAEL: That they are going to get something out of it, i.e., enlightenment, awakening, happiness, peace, etc. It’s the opposite. True spirituality is a loss, not a gain. It’s the dissolving of the false “me,” the one who imagines everything revolves around “them.”

This personal position is the suffering. For now the rain is not simply what is happening, for example, but “my” picnic has been ruined! See? It‘s a personal interpretation of that which is inherently impersonal.

Without a thought, what is personal?
