The Ultimate Understanding

The understanding is essential in life, it is an important factor in everything that you do. How or What you take yourself to be, what is you, what is the world, and what is between that, the understanding of such things is the most important.
What you are thinking of as "awake" - some intense new passion for a worthy cause or a deep feeling of love for all existence, is actually the deep sleep, much deeper than a feeling of boredom or indifference. It is an intense association with the Illusion. The bored and the indifferent are on the verge of leaving the lure of the temptress Maya behind, no longer swayed by her shiny attractions. They are on the verge of waking. - Siddharameswar Maharaj
It does not matter where do you live, all over the world there is this feeling that something is deeply wrong with your life. It is felt so clearly; an unnamed busyness keeps you disconnected from the truth.

The world is run by banks and big corporations; they want economic growth at all costs producing stress, depression and apathy for all of us. We work hard just to pay taxes and monthly bills.

People who run these corporations are humans far apart from the human nature. They possess (or are possessed by) mentality of a predatory spirits who embodies greed; gluttony and selfishness. They're impossible to feel compassion for others.

The predatory, heartless monsters lead this planet. They run it by employing tactics of division, celebrating wants and artificial needs for consumption, creating mass poverty and fear as a system of control.

According to the 2016 statistics... the average Canadian home has grown from 1,000 square feet to almost 2,500 square feet. We consume twice as many food and material goods today as we did 50 years ago. All while carrying, on average, nearly $15,000 in credit-card debt.

Society suggesting that you fill up our inner emptiness by buying things. Buy, buy, buy... sugared and processed foods, clothing, cars, new homes, gadgets, plastic surgery, cosmetics, drugs, vacations...

You buy things you don't need with money you don't have to impress people you don't like. Just as your fellows who run big corporations you also have lost the connection with your feelings and inner being, and that lack of connection left you heartless and empty.
There is a woman whom one man calls his "wife", another calls his "sister" and a third calls his "daughter". Actually she is nothing but a lump of flesh and bones. Whatever you give a name to comes to exist. All is conceptual and depends upon the concept of the seer. The world and the beings in it are conceptual. The "seer" who takes the world to be real is the ego, and that ego has to be eradicated. If the ego vanishes, then only Reality remains. - Siddharameswar Maharaj
The life's journey is a scam. There is no journey... There is no destination to reach, there is only this moment. And at this moment there is a terrifying truth - you live life with mistaken "me" identity.

Me, me, me... it is all about me... the sense of "I" does not reside in any particular part of the body. "I" is not in the body, neither as tenant nor as its owner. Identification with the body is "me", it is an understanding, belief, conviction, nothing else. Once it is accepted, it creates birth and death, greed, desire, hatred, craving and self-importance.
When the 'me' is gone, the concept of being a seeker, the sense of doing something and the idea of something to be attained are also gone. Paramatman is uncovered without doing anything about it. If you examine all of your thoughts, you will find there is no 'I' at all. - Siddharameswar Maharaj
That's where you are... You are a slave of your fears; under the sway of imagination, concepts, desires and doubts. Getting rid of all that is self-realization, awakening or enlightenment. 

How enlightenment feels, you have to discover it for yourself.
