The human dilemma is that we find ourselves trapped between the two worlds. We live at once in the paradox of duality, caught up in wanting more- of everything. Even if we have been very lucky to have discovered a rich expansive inner world that quite literally allows us to savor moments so crisp it is as if we are on fire with potential, there is the pull of the outer through every message that filters through us. Acquire, achieve, accelerate and accomplish is the external mantra.
Gazing Into the Void by dragoonadept
Only in releasing attachment to everything- inner and outer can we find our way out of duality's illusion into the blissful realm of Oneness. Once we have gazed into the void, there can be no turning back to believe in the fiction of external events. Every misspent, misspoken and ill perceived iota burns away in the flame of nothingness and our life's course returns to eternal equanimity.
We are finally like the famed mountain of Buddhist lore. Storms may come, yet they are only like a silk scarf brushing across the mountain top. The mountain remains unmoved, serene and calm.
May this blessing be realized for each one of us now.
