It is by your own efforts you find the true meaning of life. You have to do your own spiritual work. You have to do your own spiritual findings deep within. Never rely on someone else to do your findings for you. There are no shortcuts in this spiritual life. You cannot find it through anyone else. You may be led along a certain path and helped by a teacher, master, guru or guide, but the time comes when that teacher etc. Has to withdraw and has to leave you to go the rest of the way by yourself. This is where all you have learnt has to be put into practice, where self discipline is essential, where obedience may be a matter of life or death, where your faith has to be rock-like and unshakable. You must learn to see things clearly, know exactly where you are going and what you are doing and go right ahead and do it without any hesitation. Never be indecisive and stand on the brink and dither. Plunge right in when you have sought and found the answer and do what you know has to be done.
