When one ‘dives’ into the remembrance of Who They Really Are from an authentic and transparent Intention, the humility of genuine surrender opens the Heart [beyond simply the mind] and the world-mirror reflects all that is NOT who they are … in a flood of ‘triggers’. If they use Self Inquiry/Surrender, the desolation of conditioning is very fiery but lightning fast.
What often occurs is a phase where the wanderer who has taken the deep dive within may feel ‘useless’ with an attitude of: “what’s the point of my being here?” The dream can then seem like a waste of attention as interest in it fades to little more than caring for the body. Its a kind of ‘spiritual depression’ that can be very intense but very necessary since the last bit of conditioning often needs to be squeezed out like wringing out a wet wash cloth.
If you are experiencing feelings such as described - ‘take heart’ … ALL IS WELL …its part of the last gasp of the false self using every tiny remnant of conditioning in the attempt to remain alive.
