If we are injured, we use crutches or a wheel-chair to get around. But eventually we stand up and walk on our own.
If our spirits want to find perfect equipoise in the human realm, we can avail ourselves of the energies or deities and gurus.
But at the end of the day, we cannot and should not take possession of them. We can let them flow away as they flowed towards us.
Then we can use all the help we’ve been given to be truly awakened without being prodded! This is the sacred mission of our spirits.
