Are you constantly seeking approval and positive reinforcement? Do you question whether or not you are enough? Are you attached to your familiar patterns? What are you willing to pay to be free? The first step is to recognize the masks we wear, trapping ourselves in a cycle of doing that keeps us in suffering. We must see beyond the maya, the identification with the ego, and surrender. We must recognize the true self- this is the way to Samadhi. It's a space where we lose our identification with self, and we become nothing. It's when we think with the heart, and not the head. If you want to realise Samadhi you must see yourself beyond the senses, beyond thoughts. You must go deep within, beyond distractions, beyond craving, beyond aversion. Examine your life honestly, without judging yourself. Sit, find silence, meditate. Breathe, observe your nature to become more awake. We must drop our identity, for new life to grow. This is one of the most challenging truths to fight for. To change our inner world, we have to change our inner world.
This is the way to Samadhi- self-surrender.
"The mind makes a good servant, but a poor master." -Vedanta
