Question: Does someone really have to need or want to learn this in order for it to truly work and be helpful otherwise it is just wasting time.. right?
In this life you will find that people are either travelers or seekers. Every single one of us is a traveler, and seekers are travelers who have experienced enough suffering to search for their liberation.
Travelers will stop by your house for dinner, ask a few questions sitting by the fire. Perhaps they will stop by and chat from time to time, but they are busy and life is busy. At times when life has moments of intense suffering they will pop in and stay the night, recharge their batteries in conversation but leave the next morning.
Seekers will stop at nothing to find the end of their suffering. They will camp on your door step, hide in your flower beds, they will jump out from behind trees with questions. They set up war rooms in your house with detailed whiteboard graphs trying to figure out how to reach the gates of liberation. They burn inside for release of suffering, and they will stop at nothing till they get it.
Every traveler will reach the gates of liberation and be burned before they die. Travelers will reach it in the moments before death when the illusions of them has no where to hide. At that point they will see truth, and find their liberation as the illusion of time, and them fades.
Seekers if they have suffered enough, if they are not afraid of the gates, and fearlessly face the answers no matter what they are, will get to die before they die. For them the illusion will disappear and only what they have always been will remain. This can happen for a seeker in the first line they read in a book, or sitting at the feet of a teacher after twenty years of intense study. It can also can happen like the erosion on a beach, each idea washes a small part of the illusion away. It can happen like a bolt of lighting when sitting on the toilet. There is no formula for it, no rules to follow, only when the illusion fades will they be free.
“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Matt 7:7
