Most people who are supposedly “spiritual seekers of Truth” today are not serious. For what they are often seeking is 1) validation of their own greatness, 2) confirmation of their opinions and concepts, 3) glorification of their efforts in chartering new roads to “think independently”. Basking in the light of imagined efforts of being a renegade against the norm of “oppressive dogmas”!
For the moment they are granted a source of new recognitions that answers ALL their questions and solves all their seeking authoritatively, they immediately cool off, become silent, withdraw, and craft a thousand excuses not to objectively assess the Work presented. They cannot overcome themselves enough to open up in objectivity and are thus blinded by their disappointment of these new recognitions coming from an Alien Source that is outside their circle of influence and thinking. Ego prevents every effort of clear examination and acceptance. They just revel at the thrill of being master in a nebulous world of fantasy where their opinions and thoughts rule supreme! On account of this…they reject this Source!
Thus we arrive at the conclusion through this behavior that their seeking was never about Truth or really finding. No…it was all about themselves. The purpose of seeking is finding, and the purpose of finding is adjusting. Thus he who is not willing to adjust is not trying to find, and he who is not trying to find is not seriously seeking either.
