You are now living in ignorance, darkness. The knowledge that you have in you, the spark of the Divine, encased in sheaths of bliss, intelligence, feeling, sensations and organic substance - this knowledge is the light that will dispel ignorance. Earn the knowledge yourself; experience it. Do not simply borrow the knowledge from others. Make it your won; you cannot exist on the money in someone else's purse or bank account. You must light your own lamp and travel forward with the light that it sheds. This is the self-confidence you have to acquire, confidence in the self of yours, the Self that is a spark of God.
