Why might not be as important as what you truly want.

If you want enlightenment you need to meet the resistance that the feelings are causing and if you want to feel good you avoid doing the work and pursue other things.


Only the phonies won't end up enlightened.

To the sense of self change is seen as a threat, something dangerous to its survival agenda.

"I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside." -- Rumi

you have mistakenly taken yourself to be a body, you are happy being top dog in your own little domain and so you dismiss being emperor of the entire universe as ludicrous, you love your life too much as it is to risk giving up what you have gotten for the chance of having it all

you don't believe what i am saying

This is an infinite and endless canvas. More importantly, it's completely empty.

Ego always defends  itself so this is natural.  Unless enligment can bring to you a specific benefit, you will never want it.

Remember your thoughts, feelings are being filtered/distorted by ego for survival purpose.   Enligment = bring your thoughts and feelings above your survival needs.   Once you have an awakening and see its benefits, your ego might want it, or might not ;) if you are not ready

Because you don't really want it.
