Listen to this one. :)
The realisation of nature mind or Awakening doesn't depend on any outer form, retreat or ritual.
1. Needs 3 things: Your participation; You need a good guide, spiritual friend or teacher; and then the Instructions, thats all.
You have to do it anyway, all by yourself
2. To not to look to far away. Whatever you are looking for is right there, close to you.
Further you fly away, you have lesser chance to find it.
Short & Sweet enough?

Why create so much Suffering, Unhappiness & Pain to Self and Others?
GM said in this early morning session, our time, that is you can't let go, you can concentrate oo focus one One, then you won't be able to reach Realisation or Enlightenment.
GM also said within the vehicle transporting him to and from events, there were only a few students, but personalities battles exist too amongst these handful of students.
Thats Sentient Realm that each Individual holds on to, even when they are in the close confine with a Living Buddha!
Go ponder on the above. :)
