The wave upon an ocean appears have a form and travel forward in time to the shore. And yet, we realize that nothing (no form) travels. And that at every point in the ocean, apparent movement is in the Now… even if a point far away can be mentally / experientially conceptualized as the “past” (or “birth”) of the point near the shore (“death”)!  (more…)

When the mind is still in dominant play and so, attention is still substantially attuned to the experiential / phenomenal, it is easy to assert that being present and speaking / embracing “truth” includes the “truth of the moment” — that which is experiential, temporal and transient. Once attuned totally and continuously to the unchanging I — even as the waves appear to arise and pass in the infinite, unchanging, oceanic I — it’s impossible to characterize the waves as “truth,” even of the moment, as at all moments there is awareness / embodiment of the oceanic I. (For those in the Seattle area: at all moments there is awareness of the unmoving mountain behind the passing cloud… simply as there is no mind-identification with the experience of cloudiness, while there’s total allowing of it!)  (more…)

Every perspective is accurate (“right”), and no perspective is Truth. That is, no-perspective is Truth 🙂

P.S. No, Truth is not the sum total of perspectives either… no amount of changing angles reveals a thing, even if it allows the habitual fixed stance to release 🙂

Truth dawns in no perspective at all, in the zero separation of seer-and-seen.

For solidarity, recognize the One who stands for (is a stand in for!) your(Self), dividing not a “you” from (your)Self. That being that is You, only appearing as another.

And once there is recognition of the One, there is recognition of everyone standing for I.

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.

With so many things, our collective pact to label them good or bad has us suffering unwittingly. One such label, which falls in the “good” category, is awarded to empathy.

Empathy and antipathy (connected with psychopathy/ sociopathy) are both rooted in pathos, from where pathology also arises. (Pathos is sadness and pathology is concerned with the study of dis-ease.)

Empathy is experiencing more than a share of feelings/ thoughts arising in the collective mind, and antipathy is an aversion to feeling any share. (We can throw apathy in the mix too, which is a numbing to it all.) When I say “a share,” what I’m really pointing to, is first, the conception of “me” and “another,” thereby creating the effect of “feeling the other” as a (mistaken) way to erase the separation and find unity again! And simultaneously creating the apparently opposite effect, manifesting as “rejecting the other.” Imagine that there’s all this underground lava looking to burst forth, generated in the first place from the concept of separation, of “me” and “them.” Both the empath and the antipath are spouts that bring it forth in “opposite” ways, but we’ve determined one to be “good” and one to be “bad”… instead of seeing them both as pointers to the original error — the belief in separation!  (more…)

That which is self-sacrificing is self-serving 🙂

*****
Truth is Paradox series

P.S. Here “self” is the concept/identity “me.” Abiding as (One)Self there is no sacrifice! As there is no-two, there cannot be that thing that is given up for this thing! Every action is recognized as the sole “choice,” arising in Universal well-being without a perception of a “downside” or “cost.”
