Beyond tolerance or acceptance

She:
I’m beginning to think there is no real thing as love and acceptance maybe just tolerance. And trusting anyone with real feelings is just asking for heartache. No one has the time nor is anyone inclined to understand anyone else, not really.

Me:
What we call “tolerance” is usually another form of intolerance…”I am beginning to think” breeds consequently intolerance, with other words, resistance as an answer to lovelessness.

I have said this million times before, but that seems our hardest setback – THINKING…

Where thought – that is identification – is present, Love is absent.

How can we be inclined to understand anyone else when we live in falseness…? When we, indeed, do anything in our might to defend our right to be wrong, to be biased…when the only “love” we know is fearing, controlling and thus taking revenge on the other…

No…we don´t have the time to love…because that would entail that we question our identification with Thought…- with WHO WE THINK WE ARE…

Only thought accepts or doesn´t accept.

Love is beyond tolerance or acceptance.

LOVE SIMPLY EMBRACES ALL.

Take your responsibilty to love and be alive

Originally posted on Mirrors of Encounters:

You must have felt it –  that feeling of despondency as if being trapped within yourself beyond escape. That utter isolation, hopelessness of not being able to reach out. Nobody to reach. Nobody interested to see or hear…Just indefinable isolation all the way in to the marrow of your being.

What is this inner pain about really? Can we find out what it is without trying again to escape from it? If we don´t find out what pain is, we will continue be the slaves of our isolation.
Yes, somebody left us in the lurch – our mother or father…? – there was no one there to follow us wisely, care, hold and embrace us attentively. See us for real. We were left by ourselves, having to bear both their pain as well as ours. You couldn´t talk to anyone. Nobody listened, or if they listened didn´t hear. Nobody was disposed…

About pain and suffering

Originally posted on Mirrors of Encounters:

Richard:
Suffering has become an essential part of common sense. But it isn’t given.
Suffering derives from dualism …. which isn’t given, too.

Me:
For sure, suffering IS what the human condition is about – generally speaking.

But while someone is in pain, you can hardly say this to this person: your suffering derives from dualism…
It won´t be heard. Besides, it will be interpreted like an awful cynicism.

I guess if we want to help someone else, we have to have learned ourselves what
non-duality is about.

Richard:
Very well said. I’ve often been thinking what the essential difference is between suffering and pain. It seems there’s no significant border between these two expressions. Maybe real pain is like the physical answer for any violence on your body. And suffering are the thoughts about pain.

What do you think?

Me:
We can easily get lost…

Dismiss what you have been taught to believe

Originally posted on Mirrors of Encounters:

Going against and dismissing what I have been taught to believe is truly hard work. My brain functions have been conditioned to fathom and consider reality according to such deceitful civilizational legacy – a bunch of idiotic crap really – so the new and healthily transformational Truth which bursts out of me, has as yet no coherent words inside myself.

So these last days, I have been going around in a state of “knowing”, yet without being able to articulate these highly uncommon insights. So – great serendipity or not – I´ve just bumped here into this excerpt by Alan Watts, which just happens to put words to my epiphany.

“Just because it is a hoax from the beginning, the personal ego can make only a phony response to life. For the world is an ever-elusive and ever-disappointing mirage only from the standpoint of someone standing aside from it — as…

The cure of pain is in the pain

Paul sent me on Facebook this meaningful quote by Rumi, which felt like a great reminder this evening. Here is our dialogue:

- To acknowledge pain is to also acknowledge your aloneness. And that, if anything, is terribly challenging.The pain of loneliness and the loneliness of pain…So yes…the cure is both “in” the pain and loneliness, but also beyond…in togetherness… Or…?
– Ah yes, in UNITY with the divine…
– Participating in this dialogue now is alleviating the pain…it means that we are United…aren´t we…?
– Yes I’d like to think so.
– What happens if you cease thinking, at least in this very now?
– Then I realize what IS.
– And what is, is a shared Emotion…which is the cure. Fact is, that either we heal together, or continue to suffer separately…
– Brilliant.
