There were times in everyone's life where one was faced with difficulty and hardship, an important challenge that needed to be overcome and completed which was not in one's personal liking nor desires.
Something dwelling in our consensuses knowing that it needs to be done but we would rather avoid it, a distant righteous calling an echo slowly drowning in our immediate desire and strive for things we would rather do that are more appealing and pleasurable to our personal liking leading us to the path of less resistance.
Few are those who would on their own, rather choose the calling of the riotousness and those who ever went against their immediate and personal licking and the sense of comfort in favor of this distant calling for righteous action ‘abounding themselves.
Those who decided to lay down their personal desires and do what needs to be done had felt the immanent power of impersonal action of doing something against their immediate wishes and felt an ardent and heightened sense of satisfaction and of completeness.
It is the sense of purifying oneself from ‘one self’ of cleansing oneself from the inner complexity of our ego-driven desires that are ever more standing on our paths, and making space in us for what is truly meaningful and of higher nature unbound to our senses, always followed by a bright vision of our self and our ‘impersonal or our supra-personal identity
By following this train of thought we would obtain the key in order to be able to understand the seemingly pale, and unattractive, and monotonous monastic life of the monks filled with impersonal action void of personal desires and orienting themselves towards something higher ever more in favor of renunciation and detachment.
We will be able to connect what seemingly is so distant from one another, that is the heroic urge for sacrifice and that of impersonal action. The Hero sacrificing his well-being for a higher cause. Just like Odin who hang himself on the sacred three in order to obtain the sacred ruins, just like the monk who gave himself up for the love of God and just like the hero who is ever more ready for self-abandonment and sacrifice for the good of others, we find the same theme of impersonal action
They have found the key that opens the door of the Sacred Temple.
They resent life of the senses and egoistic self-affirmation because they had hold light and beauty in their eyes that is not comparable with any worldly riches.
