Truth happens to individuals, not to crowds. Have you ever heard of a crowd becoming enlightened? Truth happens to individuals — a Tilopa, an Atisha, a Nanak, a Kabir, a Farid.
Truth happens to individuals. Be an individual if you really want truth to happen to you. Take all the risks that are needed to be an individual, and accept the challenges so that they can sharpen you, can give you brilliance and intelligence.
Truth is not a belief, it is utter intelligence. It is a flaring-up of the hidden sources of your life, it is an enlightening experience of your consciousness. But you will have to provide the right space for it to happen. And the right space is accepting yourself as you are.
Don’t deny anything, don’t become split, don’t feel guilty. Rejoice! And I say to you again, rejoice as you are.
