  One should not imagine oneself to be one with the eye or
independent of it or the owner of it.
The same with ear and all the other senses, including the mind.
Nor should one imagine oneself to be identical with the world or

you are only truly alive when the mind and the body are one,
Buddha


when you practice mindfullness the mind is with the body, the illusion of separation is not there.

separation from body, from others, from the world , from the universe.

vertical line Each one of us are born into a stream. We must get in touch with the waters of life, know ourselves as a continuation of the world, serve our families and make new friends. We should intuitively know oneness but we should not lose our purpose in oneness. To see wisdom in the actual moment is to live an inspired life, outside the need for an explanation.

vertical line When there is no understanding to stand on then there is a cleanly reflected image of what truly is. Most of us cling to a specific frame of reference, an agenda, a ground of being, a way in which to see things. Without these we finally encounter reality, as it is. Yet even still, karma brings us back to a reference point. The insight we gain from direct experience becomes tainted by preferences once again, so that it is only possible to gain such insight and then drop it siultaneously...in order to fully practice. So i have become comfortable with the fact that at times my preferences or attachments which I am not aware of, will arise, and in that moment is the benefit of becoming aware of them, if i am present when those buttons are pushed. It is a work in progress. There is no completion
