vertical line Posted on Jun.12.2018 @ 05:48AM EDT by dragoss
Our experience is shared ( labeled god, reality, experience, life.)
Our experience is attention attending the experience.

Do we act on belief, create a behaviour for others to experience? From where do you speak, act from. Why exspress yourself so strongly from a belief/thought.

vertical line Four facts that make love possible are:

Suffering is there.

Impermanence is there.

Limitation is there.

Interdependence is there.

If we try our best to understand these four facts of our experience that effort to understand will be a good kind of love.

.........

Love is more than thought
Although some people see love through their thoughts
It is not the same love

Letting go of thought is only one aspect of the practice
Another aspect is to focus the mind to one pointed concentration
Hold the sand in your hands
Hold tightly and the sand slips through
Hold lightly and the sand falls apart

"Darkness melts in the face of love and joy, and ossifies into an impenetrable wall in the face of malice. If you lose 'love' in that widest possible sense of the term, you lose your power, and you lose it right when you need it most."

What is love built upon?
What is love built with?
It is not made with sand or stone
Some say it comes from the heart
How would you lose your heart when you needed it the most?

vertical line Off the top of my head I'd say you'd probably need it the most when the kundalini starts rising.
