How often would a spiritual text actually say to you, “Get ready to stop, graduate from working so hard collecting merit and karma. You have done enough already, just lay down your burden when you are ready and relax. Be Happy.” It really is not in any self-interest of the religious establishment to spread the good news because there is indeed, nothing left to do.
Lama Marut has recently released a book, A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life which is a blueprint for creating and sustaining happiness in a modern age of consumerism, self-absorption, and stress.
Diving inwards to retrieve the jewel of our true nature calls for great courage. Sometimes spiritual openings light us up with inspiration, filling our hearts with love, joy and beauty. Then at other points we are asked to let go of everything we know - everything we thought we were, allowing all that is familiar to dissolve. Letting go of just one identity or habit, one way of knowing ourselves can initially feel terrifying. This is why every spiritual tradition has emphasized the importance of cultivating deep trust. Trust is what gives us the strength to open into the unknown without defending, collapsing or controlling. In this way we reclaim chambers of grace that have been lying dormant within our deep being.

“You are walking on the earth as in a dream. Our world is a dream within a dream; you must realize that to find God is the only goal, the only purpose, for which you are here. For Him alone you exist. Him you must find.” —Paramahansa Yogananda
I have a dirty secret. I don’t make a lot of money. I often just get by financially, and not because I overspend, but because I just don’t earn a regular income. I have to think before I spend more than $50 and I can’t afford to travel as I used to.
1. Come into the present moment. When you panic, your thoughts break time barriers. You imagine, “This will go on forever.” Or, “Nothing will ever change.” Take as much time as is needed to move your awareness around your body, noting where you are in time and space at this very moment. Breathe slowly into the moment. I know it sounds silly. That’s good. Silly is better than panic. “Breathing slowly as I stand in the airport…I calm my body.” Or, “Breathing in through the soles of my feet, I feel more grounded.” You will actually feel some of that anxiety leave you and a greater sense of control and calm return. I promise.
