The journey from unhappiness to happiness cannot be bypassed without the ending of the illusion of separation and the death of the personal self.
A teacher who serves you the empty dish of: ‘there is no one and there is nothing to realize’ does not reveal the causeless happiness and the peace that is the reality of the Self.
You should discard such a teaching like an old useless shoe and apply yourself in the study of the Dharma.
Rare is the calling to awaken from the illusion of separation. Upon this calling, honor and dedicate yourself to this calling with all your might.
