Never feel that today is not a good enough day to awaken to the Truth. If you make plans for realising the Self in the next 6 months it will take you at least 6 months.
What you are is always here, it can never not be here. The experience may be that you are growing into emptiness, growing from something into nothingness, into emptiness. And this illusion of growth takes you to where you have always been.
We don't value emptiness until we perceive from there - then it is priceless. Throw everything into this emptiness. Not to get anything in return - just do it. Give your heart and your mind to the Self and don't worry about anything.
