Continuing with the topic of long term fruits of meditation practice …
As mentioned last week, reverence becomes our default world view after establishing a sound practice.
However the question remains: Who is reverent? Who are you at the root?
Earnest practice yields the answer -
Unless you make tremendous efforts, you will not be convinced that effort will take you nowhere. The self is so self-confident that unless it is totally discouraged it will not give up. Mere verbal conviction is not enough. Hard facts alone can show the absolute nothingness of the self-image.
