A little less than a happy high
Opening to the void
There is a temptation to clarify, to elaborate, and even to correct. Still, it would be the same conversation, and I'm convinced that the conversation itself was indicative of a dangerous pattern that was unlikely to be resolved as long as the conversation remained necessary. A perfect circle? The downward spiral? When understanding is incomplete, the space where it should lie begins to be filled with fear, with doubt, and with pain. In place of communication, there is reaction. In place of compassion, there is need. If there is a way in which we may be able to share mind/spirit/body, I can't help but think that reaction and need will stand in the way.

The lovely ljuser Kocahine once posted this which I now have next to my computer:

no attachments
no aversions
no desire
no anger
no hopes
no fears

Reacting is a function of ego, a need to be right and validated. If you know your truth for yourself and honor it, then it exists already. Anyone with any sense already knows that truth exists in between and down the middle somewhere. It doesn't need to be said. Everyone's individual experience is equally valid. I hope you are well. Best.

I'm finding it harder to reply than I thought. It really is a very elegant statement of what I keep wanting to say. Presence, a true presence of the Self, is what I see in it.

Thanks for saying. I'm sad, but I think this is right somehow.

I'll say what I said to someone else quite recently, just live what's in front of you. Remember not to try and dictate the future based on Will and Want because our scope and will is inherently flawed; that which is outside us is not. You can't know what will happen. Doing this now, as it feels right in gut and instinct and capability, will ensure your happiness in the future, it's an investment in yourself to whatever end. It's a matter of faith to know that you will get what you need, past what you ever could have imagined or vied for. Best to you.
