To be whole, none of your energy can be diverted. Mostly our energy is diverted: Diverted by the struggle for survival, the desire for success, all the many identifications and ideologies and the idea of being something or somebody.
These images and ideas are barriers to clear perception, and divide and distort the mind. They destroy mental health and create illusion and suffering, conflict and confusion.
They are what causes ignorance and make a human being unaware. However, full and undivided awareness of these illusions, divisions and distortion with a deep, clear understanding of them, dissolves them: And this is true awareness.
