Many spiritual paths involve transformation of the personality. The
assumption is that there must be a change in conditioning in order to move
ahead. Therefore bad habits should be discarded and good ones cultivated.
Certainly we should not discourage people from improving themselves. The
Jnana disposition, however, once gained, fundamentally undermines this view
by piercing the veil of delusion that there is something to be gained by
transforming the personality, which is not already present. Here the
intensity of awareness shines naturally.
Truly, how can one discard that which does not belong to It? And how can one
discard that which One Is? Once the Heart of Attention has fundamentally
shifted to Itself, that Itself is the fuel of the effortless effort which
eventually burns up leaving nothing behind. When the Ground of Being absorbs
all attention and all effort, what is there to discard and how and by whom?
Still, I am not opposed to discarding various types of conditioning at all.
If you are for it, I am for it.
