For once, there is a similarity, a consistency, an alignment between the outer and the inner…

Can an outer journey ever be outsourced… if we are to travel, we in person have to travel.. no one can travel on our behalf.. there may be many aids who can assist in the plan… but the journey has to be traveled alone… We are alone responsible for the outer journey…

Similarly… with the inner.. Religion at the max can perhaps merely aid a few on the periphery.. if one can manage without… that is also fine… But the journey has to be traveled alone.. No, not even your God can cover for you..It cannot be outsourced to God… It’s you and you alone.. It’s your journey ALONE…

God, if at all he exists… would only be ready to welcome you..He expects you to come “Alone”…braving all odds and the devils en-route…encountering the devils within….

But the essential and often criminally overlooked ingredient is that of “Acceptance”…No journey can kick-start without this key element… Can an individual “Accept” himself… this very moment… the way he is… despite all the shortcomings that society has heaped on him and his own interpretations adding onto that heap…

Acceptance has a very idle connotation associated with it..A very passive connotation…It takes tremendous understanding… a tremendous maturity to accept oneself…Perhaps acceptance is the only such factor where the focus is not outward… but inward…

Any journey originating with Non Acceptance is not a journey at all.. It’s a waste of time and effort…

So blessed with Acceptance…start on the journey….

And in this journey… your Godhood…your Godliness is released…
