God makes the rivers to flow. They tire not, nor do they cease from flowing. May the river of my life flow into the sea of love that is the Lord. – The Rig Veda

There is no “me.”

Life is difficult.

Life is difficult because I think that it is about getting what I want in an easy, exciting, and pain-free way.

To be free, I must understand that the true point of life is to grow along spiritual lines.

I have been meditating on the fact that desire is the real culprit; the desire for pleasure to be specific.  Seeking pleasure is the way that my false self gains identity.  Pleasure is excitement, false sense of power, and lack of pain; gratification from non-eternal elements.  These are the causes and conditions that block me from God – all fueled by desire (wanting).

When I realize there is no “me,” I dissolve into the sea of love as Alka-Seltzer dissolves in water.  The difficulties in this life are analogous to a drop of water in the ocean fighting for its own identity.  Why would I prefer to be a single drop when, in reality, I am one with the entire ocean?

As are all drops.
