Solve Me, Dissolve Me

I can never solve my problems, because the root problem is
the perennial discomfort of the I. Nor does it help to simply
drop my problems, because no matter how many problems
I drop, the weight of I still remains.

But while it is difficult to drop my problems, it is easy to drop
me. The ancient Rishi Ashtavkra summed up books of spiritual
instruction in two words: Layam vraja, "Dissolve now!'
(The Ashtavakra Gita)

Through the grace of the Master comes initiation into meditation.
Through meditation, "I" gracefully dissolve. Then there is a dance
of celebration. And in celebration, problems solve themselves.
It is a most beautiful path, because it is pathless.

Jai Guru Dev.
