How many seekers are frustrated by not having attained bliss? How many seekers think that they have failed or that their teacher has failed when what they believe to be bliss does not manifest or when they think that bliss comes on occasion but does not remain?

Those are the thoughts and beliefs of seekers who are at what my teacher called "the kindergarten level of spirituality." How many feel that their goal to become "perfectly spiritual, and thereby perfectly blissful" is being thwarted at every turn?

Maharaj said, "No ambition is spiritual. All ambitions are for the sake of the 'I am'. The ambitions of the so-called Yogis are preposterous. A man's desire for a woman is innocence itself compared to the lusting for an everlasting personal bliss. The mind is a cheat. The more pious it seems, the worse the betrayal."

Regularly, seekers who speak of "the darkness" and of higher levels of consciousness are told that there is no darkness and that there are no levels of consciousness.

The so-called "darkness" in which the non-Realized live is not really darkness but is merely an absence of light caused by the blockages that have accumulated, and the consciousness is merely consciousness that is either blocked from seeing accurately and from seeing truth or is not.

When so many blockages accumulate, then the light cannot penetrate and all seems dark, but that absence of witnessing the light does not mean that the light is not there. It is simply not observable because of a separation from the source of the light - either because the light has been blocked or because there is nothing available to reflect the light.

The higher level of understanding in regards to this topic is that (1) not only is "no ambition spiritual," nothing is spiritual; and (2) not only is "the mind a cheat" but the "mind" is actually as much an illusion as the darkness.

If the seeker would "find bliss," then the seeker must know what bliss is and what it is not. If one that is in kindergarten is sent to the store to buy the materials needed to build a "what-cha-ma-call-it," the kindergarten-age-child will not have the slightest clue about what he is seeking and neither will anyone else that he asks to help with finding everything required to build a "what-cha-ma-call-it."

The reason most never "find bliss" is that they are as mistaken about what bliss is and what bliss is not as persons are mistaken about what "the world" is and what it is not. This book offers a clarification.
