All of our life-long conditioning does nothing more than conceptualize and personalize experience…unless and until it seems we’re driven to deep inner seeking with questions like “What is really going on here?” or ” Who am I really?” For some, in their search, finally, there’s a giving up, a denial of all beliefs, a cessation (Nirvana means ‘cessation’) A revelation, so to speak.
One of the things that ‘happens’ when there’s the direct recognition of one’s actual, infinite, unborn being – beyond the born body/mind and its obvious, inevitable death – is that all fear belonging exclusively to the body/mind, wondrously disappears. What remains is a solid, non-personal ‘knowing’ that all of humanity is, in fact, in spirit, deathless, having never been born. Knowing this beyond mind-generated doubt and philosophy – that nothing we truly, really are, dies – one can bring deep love and compassion to all passing relationships. In knowing the self deeply, we come to rest in the profound peace of awareness. Love really 🙂
