What is misery? What is suffering?
Notice that in suffering and misery there is only the “I”: “I am suffering”, “I am in misery”.
For the one observing the misery and suffering there is also the ‘I’ involved: I am.
Awareness of being in this process uncovers another layer of ‘I’.
Notice what is the ‘I’ that is observing? That also can be an identity.
Is that the Self? But I thought the Self has no identity???
Do you see this confusion?
Notice that the one doing the observation can also be an identity.
So how to establish in the Self … the witness of all events?
Observe, make sense, let go. The one letting go is the Self.
If I can’t make sense of it, what to do?
If can’t make sense then it is just nonsense!
Then why attach to nonsense?!
You see how misery and suffering arises?
It’s just one big circle! 😀
So understanding or realizing misery and suffering is just nonsense!
How then do we not lose our zeal in seeing all these?
Misery and suffering are non-sense i.e. not of the senses but the mind–an imagination.
What do you mean? So if something is nonsense then why put attention to it?
So just let go. But how to let go?
That can only be done from within.
You are so sweet and kind.
On the willingness of the individual to let go …
So as a light of the world we need to provide the support for others to let go.
To assure others so that they have the confidence to let go by being there for them always.
Until there is self-knowledge and confidence of oneself it is very difficult to let go.
So as teachers of the Truth, we are there just to enable others to engage in self-knowledge. This comes with time.
So until they are strong enough we just need to be there and be patient.
We need to be patient for the ‘patient’! LOL
Totally broken, heart is feeble.
You see our role and the need to be patient?
Sometimes when nothing seems to be happening it is for us to dwell on our own patience.
Patience is recognizing I am beyond all this.
Patience is unconditional acceptance and without expectations for a result.
Patience is reposing in the self.
Patience is recognizing the mind is constantly churning but YOU are not.
Patience is your nature.
