when you begin to become conscious, more aware, when your eyes begin to open, the first thing you see is how deluded you are and how much you’re holding onto that which makes you suffer. this is, in many ways, the most important step: are you willing to be aware? are you willing to open your eyes? are you willing to be wrong? are you willing to see that you may not be living from a standpoint of truth, from a standpoint of reality?
