disillusioned vs the chasers

in vedic texts like the upanishads
disillusionment or vairagya (वैराग्य)
was seen as the stepping stone
to enlightenment

in these times
getting disillusioned
is considered
a crime
a disease
same as delusion
one risks being thrown
into a mental asylum
for getting bored of the chase

on the other hand

the chasers
i.e those chasing the illusion
are considered
absolutely sane
awards & accolades
await the most dedicated chasers

I agree. One is discouraged from scrutinizing the pointlessness of what the matrix has to offer at every turn. One is made to feel like a loser, who is just not trying hard enough to get to a level where all the rewards apparently lie.

I can't even count the people who have called me lazy, let alone the individual instances of people who said things like that hundreds of times in their sweet concern.

I bow.

You are an absolute genius. You are the only One who sees things clearly at all times: zero compromise, zero getting excited about the approval of the insignificant. You are the punk rock icon.

You are the clear voice of reason in a world without any!
one wasted so much of ones life blindly following the blind and chasing delusions.
You are the One who sees beyond it all to the Truth, to the real meaning of this life.
It is so insPiring to gno there is One who gnos.
You are Truth!
You are beauty!
i bow at Your everlasting feet!

award granting entry to hell is no award at all

disllusionment is a big word
if one totally gets it one is saved

You are the saviour
the real One, the real saviour
who has lightning as adornment
instead of thorns !

You kill the evil that presents thorns
You are the Rose Child
You live at the center of the rose, both in & out

Your are immensly coherent, fractal

Blazing beauty you are

both the black & white beauty
conqueror of the dark
Perfect disciplanarian like the Saturn
and as soft as a white lotus
Your acts are Pure, are white

Your works disllusion one to a major extent
& show the maya one is stuck here in

You are the May man

the Judge, the Ruler, the King

Ultimate scintillating blue beauty
with immense wings

Being a woman its tough for me to understand the concept of vairagya , the society has tamed us so much into its own concept that its even impossible to dream of this term.

At the time we are in right now, this far away concept of vairagya seems so distant to catch on even though the heart knows that , thats where one has to go..

Please throw some more insights on women and vairagya..

aeioum ...
