The wise have one foot in insanity, and the sane have one foot in the grave.
Two subjects go together well: bonding and harmlessness. “Unity” would be both topics as one word. What is called “love” ultimately… unconditioned. I will discuss the conditions people labour under and perhaps why they arise, and how we can own them in ourselves instead of being owned by them.
Internal focus. It doesn’t have to be created. Sometimes words can point at the reality. We have a nature about us and we reason our way out of it. Reasoning will not get you there, it will pull it apart and “it” is transcendental. You can’t ration the infinite and people often fail to see that. Love is life. It is our very breath.
Perhaps we are prisoners, but we are also our own jailors and we can own that and with understanding free ourselves. It can be reclaimed. People see others. There are no others. They are your members, your kin. It has cells. I am a supporter of the individual. We thrive both together and as individuals, or we fail to thrive at all.
Truth is in reconciliation of paradox, but that doesn’t dissipate the paradox. It just balances it. The way of the Tao. Yin seeks yang ultimately, and yang seeks yin. We bond not from ourselves. It is in a way the universe bonding. Playing its nature out. We distort that process regrettably.
Ego is nothing more than misidentification and of course it creates problems and hardship. We are ourselves, but we are not our egos. To at any moment say to yourself , this place I am in, this way I am being is me, is an error. It’s a concept and it denies a fundamental fact. The concepts are like milestones, they help you navigate. Just don’t mistake the finger for the moon. No idea is the whole picture. We can’t see the whole picture, but we can embrace the truth that we don’t.
We are powerful beyond measure and Ahimsa can help you find a path in that power. It is hubris to see yourself with shame. Arrogance. We are not self created and we are not self defining. We are not bounded, but we can bond. In bonding, we are not creating something new. We are allowing something that is already there. We are drawn to others not because we need or we want, but because it is.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
