Isn't becoming conscious the final aim of spirituality?
Regarding Spiritual Realization, we must see the personality in its entirety. No stones can be left unturned. All devils must come to light. All that produces suffering must be seen. No exceptions.
It is not a question of intentionally getting rid of anything, it is a question of awareness. From there everything takes care of itself. Consciousness spontaneously eliminates what is useless.
Becoming conscious is not the end of the path; it is the beginning of the end. The end of the path is losing what we once believed we had become.
