The teachings of shamanic leaders—Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Krishnamurti, Yogananda, and many others—are all extremely simple. Yet the dedication to apply them and practice them on a daily basis in their simplicity is often what stops us. We have the tendency to believe that healing from what binds us has to be complicated, but it does not. Since we believe it has to be complicated, however, it reveals itself to us as complicated. The complication is often that we do enough to get by, which makes us feel slightly better yet rarely frees us. When we are willing to stay the course and fully commit to being totally alive, impassioned, and energized, the layers we need to shed will peel away very quickly.
