The seeker must be aware of the reality of his pain and the unreality of his pain (invented).
When this awareness is steady, the seeker has the opportunity to detach from the coping persona. The coping persona brings the seeker down into an eternal duality, giving him a false sense of hope and a false power (“I need to resolve my pain”).
Coping is a state of tension which prevents the income of the natural self to take possession of the seeker. By not coping, the seeker hits the truth of his own freedom.
