Question: I know something great waits for me somewhere, but I haven’t a clue what it is or how to actualize it. How do I find what I really want from this life?
Answer: In the East there is an expression used to describe both the way one finds the true spiritual path and how to stay upon this invisible course. Translated, the words mean “Not this, not that.” In other words, we come upon what is true, what alone can fill the empty place in our heart, by awakening to what doesn’t work, and then walking away from that — whatever “that” may be. This is the path of negation. When we know what is false for us, then we are that much closer to coming upon what is true.
