Maybe that's true in the duality of Maya
but when the veil is removed (ego is seen through)
then it is the understanding here that we realise
that what we actually ARE is Love.

When all inner commentaries,
makara was talking about,
dialogues and thoughts
dissolves,
with them naturally, effortless
are dissolving all
accompanied
feelings,
including the feeling-ideas
of love and hate…


Thanks aqua and makara

Well, no one said that the dream
should not be enjoyed;
including the autumnal colours
and the smell of good coffee!

Yes, so true---one day even the 'absolutest' most ridged hard headed, dedicated stance on the ground of 'non-duality' gets ripped away ---Thank God---and then the whole world comes Alive Again---All is seen in the Light of God---All of this is Graced with Love; this world, tangible world, --dual and non-dual makes no difference---and Now it all makes sense; the Perfection and Love of "is not" all becomes Understood and Love comes bursting in like the waters of a broken dam--Life begins once again, brand new, we are like a child once again-- once again this time, this time we know.

We get that oft longed for 'second chance'---Now That Is Love!

This time there is no duality or non-duality; just Freedom, pure joyful freedom to Live without fear.


As my favorite teacher, William Samuel, said to me once:

"Expect the Best. You're going to expect something anyway,
You may as well expect the Best! "


You know, any limited ideas about Life are just going to put limitations on our life---meanwhile Life goes right on Unlimited, Unbound, Unbeholden to anyone or anything and any ideology therein---

I agree, and it's not a selfish conditional kind of love, where we are demanding something in return.

It's a selfless Love that allows every situation to be exactly the way it wants to be without letting other peoples opinions, conditions,
prejudices or judgements overwhelm you. A Love that doesn't expect a situation to be any different than it already is.
It's allowing for everything, hate and love included.

In other words, to let everything bounce off you without having any effect on your peace of mind.

The mind that you yourself have trained.
Nothing is going to undo all that hard work.... Wink
