Few people realise that disenchantment is a necessary stage to enlightenment.
Enchantments keep us in an illusory dream. To awaken, one needs to go through disenchantment.
However, disenchantment may also cause frustration and depression. What used to drive us (ecstatic and miserable) loses its magic.
We lose the old feeling of energy and elevation.
We are confronted with an existential crisis.
Instead of trying to hold on to that old and familiar illusion, venture on bravely into this new reality.
The source of your true identity is waiting.
Then, there is ‘death’ and spontaneous ‘rebirth’.
