So many people say that they want to become one with everything, but what they really mean is that they want to become one with everything pleasant & beautiful, with bliss & love. They do not really consider that the enlightment they pursue means that they not only become one with all that is light, but also one with all the suffering that exists in the world, with all beings, on all levels…..Lee Lozowick
we get stuck with disidentifying ourselves….so much hiding & denying the truth about ourselves…we really are one….regardless of our super-structured egos that kick & scream at the edge of the horizon…..not wanting to jump off the cliff in to the burning pit of the ‘other’ suffering souls….but no…we are the ‘other’….converging together on the horizon of transformation….this is true compassion…the real, gritty spiritual journey…
Dharma, or ‘virtuous path,’ lawful duty & service, is available to every human being who chooses to live a life directed toward her or his highest possibility. To act in accordance with dharma is to take actions that are resonant with the greater structure, or lawfulness, of a divine order or objective truth rather than being moved by our powerful & unconscious ego forces. It is up to us whether we take an active or passive role in the unraveling of our conditioned circumstances. The great freedom or truth that so many of us aspire to is only experienced in the moment, & those whom we consider liberated are simply individuals who routinely intercept their conditioning through a choice to practice & act consciously in accordance with their dharma, moment to moment….Mariana Caplan
your spiritual discernment lies on the horizon of your loving-kindness, your compassion & your beingness…..pray & be well….
Blessed are you, who opens a gate in every moment,
to enter in truth or tarry in hell….
