To align with the soul takes courage. Ramana defined enlightenment as 'absolute courage at all times and in all situations.' If you want to live an awakened life, it takes courage and grit. It takes someone who loves reality enough that they become a servant of it. What's important is the daily moment-to-moment, when nobody's looking and nobody's paying attention. You are the only person who will ever know what you acted from in any situation. Those are the moments that are the most important. That's where you will find out where your orientation is.
