All study is of (temporary) phenomena; all stories are of (personal) experience. When we combine the two, it’s all even more tenuous! Once there is Realization, there is disinterest (neutrality) in study and story, with direct and pure interest in (embracing of) phenomena and experience. Everything may be observed or enjoyed, and nothing need be interpreted or claimed.

The prevalent misconception about acceptance arises from the mind equating acceptance with resignation, or with condoning “evil.”

The paradox is that acceptance of evil — Loving it in neutrality, which means to dissolve one’s own triggers to it — is the true end of “evil.”

How so? Since one’s own triggers/reactivity provide (energetic) sustenance to evil and keep it alive, the end of the triggers/reactivity is the end of such feeding and sustenance. Acceptance, of course, means wholly accepting one’s triggers as well — without venting/acting them out — and so embraced, they dissolve!  

Experiment and see. Notice how the tiniest trigger dissolving within, corresponds “soon” to its matching phenomenon disappearing from your immediate experience. (The common belief is that the phenomenon is triggering me, but actually, the phenomenon is a manifest reflection of my triggers!) Now “scale” this to mass consciousness…

While playing in the massive, powerful waves of the ocean, the closer one is to the shore, where the waves have foaming crests and crash against the land, the tougher it is to sustain oneself; one gets powerfully whacked and outright swept away. The deeper into sea one ventures, far greater the ease in riding the waves. The safety of the shore is an illusion, just as in Love/Life!

When a wave is too high and massive to ride by hopping upward with its crest, and especially if the crest is already “ripe,” it is easier to dive right into the wave and allow IT to flip one! It appears that one is getting dragged farther out to sea, but actually the wave turns one right in place, in situ. And by allowing it to do so without resistance, one emerges naturally above water. The safety of head-above-water is an illusion, just as in Love/Life!

Allowing the shore/sky to disappear is like allowing the mind to dissolve. In the Ocean of Love/Self, all is naturally taken care of!

P.S. I’m not remotely a strong swimmer. Even while experiencing physical fear, I was glad to place total faith in the guidance of “friends at sea”… and these metaphors were at once obvious.

Seeing the ego for what it is, is never about rejecting it or getting rid of it, for only the ego would reject anything, including itself 🙂 Love allows everything. Love recognizes everything as its emanation, including the mirage that is the ego. Seeing the ego is about seeing through all its shenanigans, and allowing them to just be, offering them nothing but Presence — total, unconditional acceptance, with zero engagement or validation. 🙂 Just as a loving Parent sees through the little one’s obvious mischief, and has a good laugh! And in such Light/ness, the ego and its finite expressions are naturally embraced and integrated ‘back’ into the infinite Self… allowed to dissolve, like every wave unfailingly does, ‘back’ into the Ocean.

All feedback, whether “positive” or “negative” is always and only about the person giving it, not about the person/ situation/ event receiving it, and as such, it is ALWAYS valid, as it is their unarguable, indisputable experience! (All experience is valid and all experience is illusory, with ‘valid’ not to be confused with ‘true’ 🙂) Once we see this in no uncertain terms, it becomes easy to fully listen and receive all feedback without “taking it personally.” Which means, since every bit of what is said is about the person saying it and their completely valid experience, it need not be about us (the person/identity) at all. Paradoxically, if we hasten to fix or change something on our end driven by the feedback, it is a form of avoiding truly listening… and it is likely to be just a reaction to another’s projection (–our reaction actually arising from something not yet integrated within us–), instead of a truly realized and integrated shift for universal good.  (more…)

In moments of intense adversity and intense caring, there is no mind or thought to action. All thought is for the armchair, about situations we are not directly experiencing.

An identity needs a community to belong. While uniqueness belongs anywhere… and everywhere! Just because it’s here!
