Q: Hi Brent. What do you do if your egoic drive/motivation in life has completely dried up, but nothing else has moved in to take its place?
A: You rest.
You’ve been working for your whole life (and lifetimes before) driven and motivated by ego. Finally, you’ve come to a point where you can rest. Accept the opportunity and relax.
When egoic drive dries up, you enter into a place on the path where there is nothing to move you. You must rest, be lazy, and trust in the path. Before the Divine can come into your being to inspire and animate you, you must be initiated.
This period of having no drive whatsoever is an initiation. It is perhaps one of the most difficult initiations to go through because it is in stark opposition to one of the most powerful driving forces - the ego.
I’ve been through these stages a handful of times on my path. They’re always so difficult because they make you feel lazy and useless, like a bum. During these stages, what’s being burned up are the egoic beliefs and mechanisms that impede true Divine inspiration from flowing through you. Once these old mechanisms have truly been exhausted, something new and fresh will begin to inspire you. You won’t be able to resist it. It’s coming, in time. Until then, rest.

Happy Thaipusam Day! Kuala Lumpur is pretty much shut down today for the Hindu equivalent of Thanksgiving. I'm still forever in awe of devotees who make the annual pilgrimage on foot from the Sri Mahamariaman temple near Chinatown to these temples buried deep within Batu Caves. Often bearing offerings, ranging from pots of milk to heavy, ornate 'Kavadis' held in place with hooks and piercings through the bodies of those who choose to pay penance on this day, the 8-hour long journey is quite a test of faith and resolve. #thaipusam#batucaves#malaysia#religiousfestival#travel#wanderlust#kualalumpur#hinduism
There are various grades of men, and out of many thousands, one may be sufﬁciently interested in transcendental realization to try to know what is the self, what is the body, and what is the Absolute Truth. Generally mankind is simply engaged in the animal propensities, namely eating, sleeping, defending and mating, and hardly anyone is interested in transcendental knowledge. The ﬁrst six chapters of the Gītā are meant for those who are interested in transcendental knowledge, in understanding the self, the Superself and the process of realization by jñāna-yoga, dhyāna-yoga and discrimination of the self from matter. However, Kṛṣṇa can be known only by persons who are in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Other transcendentalists may achieve impersonal Brahman realization, for this is easier than understanding Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Person, but at the same time He is beyond the knowledge of Brahman and Paramātmā. The yogīs and jñānīs are confused in their attempts to understand Kṛṣṇa. Although the greatest of the impersonalists, Śrīpāda Śaṅkarācārya, has admitted in his Gītā commentary that Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his followers do not accept Kṛṣṇa as such, for it is very difﬁcult to know Kṛṣṇa, even though one has transcendental realization of impersonal Brahman.
