Begin by making yourself a special diploma saying that you have been granted a Doctorate of Philosophy in Not Knowing. As you prepare yourself to make this diploma, remind yourself again that the spiritual elders and revered teachers throughout all of history have told us that enlightenment comes to a don't know mind, not one filled with education. Neither Jesus, Abraham, Buddha, or Mohammed had a college degree, diploma, nor professional license to teach, heal, counsel, or guide others. They fulfilled their destiny through emptying their minds of what was held as conventional sense and surrendering their lives to a spiritual experience.
