How Do I Know I’m Deluded?

A breakthrough step on the spiritual path is realizing just how deluded we really are – otherwise we would not have to seek happiness outside ourselves. To see our true state of mind, we have to properly investigate and honestly peel away the layers of the mind’s delusion.  In this way, we develop a healthy mind and experience a true happiness that had never seemed within our reach. When we fill our lives with daily acts, speech, and thoughts of loving-kindness and compassion for ourselves and all beings, we stand on the threshold of unprecedented freedom.
