Conditioning is the clay that sculpts the illusory body-mind-identity you currently wear as a disguise hiding the Real YOU [ONE SELF]. It has been precisely designed by the attachments, expectations and identifications you came in with. When you begin ‘in earnest’ to remove these clouds of deception, there is usually a tsunami of ‘triggers’ that herald the conditioning that is close to the surface and now ‘ready’ to be dissolved.
It can be daunting as the false self attempts to turn your longing for Freedom ‘outward’ again to the limitless seductions of the Grand Dream. But if your choice was ‘Freedom NO MATTER WHAT’, you will have stayed on course and much conditioning will have dissolved in those early days. However, as you rise higher and higher above the theater of illusions the most deeply ingrained conditioning ‘clings’ to its fading and false existence. Its influence becomes insidious like an Achilles heel you have yet to become aware of as you near the summit of your pathless-path.
It may show up as subtle judging or buried wounds from long departed betrayals that pull at your heart-strings or eruptions of long suppressed anger or a host of other ephemeral gremlins whose ‘tiny hooks’ still bind your attention that now begin to surface. At first these elusive conditioning remnants can be ‘shocking’ but they will soon deepen your resolve to complete your ‘journey without distance’. Press on .. although you have eternity to be Free … you chose Freedom NOW - hold fast to it.
