Until we have our first awakening experience, we're not aware of the conflicts inside us. There are constant small threats outside the walls of the ego's castle. But the one day something miraculous happens. Truth wins without firing a single shot. A great and sudden feeling of freedom arises. It comes from right inside these castle walls. It happens when we drench our fear, anxiety, shame and darkest shadows with a curious, loving and healing awareness. This is liberation. This is the end of the war.
