A No said from the Nothingness of Self, in alignment with universal well-being, is at once also a Yes. A no said from fear, habit patterning, conditioning, control, doubt, compulsion, reactivity, resistance, self-protection, convenience, or plain old laziness to stretch or expand into possibility, is neither no nor yes. It’s just no man’s land, the equivalent of remaining stuck in purgatory.

P.S. As an aside, you’ll notice that few will argue with or object to the first kind of No, as they intuitively and immediately recognize that it’s arising from that “centerless center” also capable of a wholehearted and unconditional Yes. (Even the littlest children recognize it!)

A true open mind isn’t one that is able to hold or becomes occupied with thought-full-y considering and processing all manner of views and perspectives, but one that is held so lightly that it is transparent… its openness is in its lightness and transparency… allowing the Heart of Being to be instantly reached/accessed beyond the limitation of views and perspectives.

*****
It is the Heart of Being that sees the Universal in the unique (singular), whereas the identified mind is trapped in a never-ending attempt to think into place a conceptual universality via weaving together perspectives.

Pain is from accumulated resistance to the energetic flow of (as!) Life (as a survivalist response), and suffering is from accumulated resistance to pain in the form of story and narrative. The currency of the first is emotions and the currency of the second is thoughts; they do, however, arise in tandem. Both emotions and thoughts can be allowed in full (to fully arise and pass), in the Realization of being Life itSelf, with nothing to resist, overcome or survive against! As Realization is abiding, suffering ceases, and subsequently so does pain… but this cessation is never the goal, only the natural by-product of Awakening.

The difference between charity/ philanthropy and giving-receiving is that in the latter, no one can identify (with) who is giving and who is receiving.

The phenomenon of toxic masculinity and (its victim) feminine (and trans-gender/sexual) vulnerability arises in the same way every old ‘evil’ does — via perceived separation, and of mind-identification with a particular “me.” A “me” that can then have power over, or lose power to, an “other.”

A gross manifestation of the separation as “you” and “me” is via the concept of gender, via our identification with gender as it manifests in the mind-body complex and thought-forms of inherited narratives. Instead of realizing the unique way gender-expression manifests in every single one of us as a garb/vehicle, just like the unique physical body or personality, we have taken it to be who we are, and projected a ‘reality’ accordingly.

Just as acceptance is not remotely condoning or resignation, contentment is not remotely comfortableness or complacency. Acceptance and contentment are, paradoxically, the springboards of all natural transformation. (All other “change” is a form of suffering.)

One of the beloved saathis who says my writings “touch him beyond what he can understand” is a professor of Statistics (and a classical music enthusiast). Not only professor, but also the “young” head of the department at a prominent U.S. university, and well-regarded and well-awarded for his work in global patterns such as climate change and infectious disease. When I wrote a piece earlier this week (on the complaining mind) that referenced trends and outliers, I shared it with him, only so he could laugh. Here is our ensuing message exchange:  (more…)
