The end of seeking is not a decision that you make; it comes as a result of a fundamental shift that occurs because of intense seeking. In other words, seek the Source through exclusive devotion to it while allowing your outer life to go on unimpeded. Eventually, all that’s left is grace and one’s personal will is finally burned up and traded in for the will of God.
Courage comes from a seeker being in love with the source that is intuited but nevertheless they have not fully come in contact with it yet. Through devotion sparked by that small glimpse; the love for the Source grows stronger than the love for ones own preservation. It is here that the devotee musters the courage to take the leap and offer themselves as a sacrifice into the void of the unknown.
