From the present moment? Patience.
Eventually, all others will wear themselves out in all the grasping and formations of their intentions... real or not doesn't seem to matter when they
cannot tell the difference; hence asleep vs. awake.
Great compassion and empathy in understanding or trying too; through discernment must be placed with a firm resolve. (I will not open the oven door
too soon and ruin the souffle) when christ is said to have stormed the town square flipping tables?
The oven door was opened too soon... why? Gossip, lying and backbitingl it is easy to embroiled or caught up in the drama or web that other weave as a
reality that is not actual reality... chasing falsehood; is that wolf in sheeps clothing.
Teaches a valuable lesson however... letting go, non-attachment, it can mean one's life if they do not know when to strike. So many move via intent
whether that karma good(for others) bad(for self) it still goes round and round missing the entire point on which all revolves.
Ego when stuffed full of itself needs no attention; the soufle is done... but then those starved for attention, constantly seek more eggs from opening
that door. It is a weird round and round...
The awareness or being that raises the hand without a thought; is the true nature of being... thought can drive a being; but it is not the true nature
of being... it is a karmic body of being; and being a karmic body of being? It is subject to decay, sickness, death, and old age.(samsara is that
cycle of becoming, from the karmic body that one continually creates in the attachment to passions and desires in intention of serving the ego self;
instead of serving others.
Still that is the round and round but the direction one's karmic body takes in formation? Greatly depends on how that service is performed. However,
no intention or purposeless being is possible; it is awakened being as simply awareness; unstained and shines like a mirror that says no word when
reflecting(clear seeing or simply seeing as a function in and of itself), instead it beats like a pulse or a wave this is not mind, but heart... hence
the non-separation of heart/mind being one. The other senses, eventually become the same and all affluents end and the subtle karmic body of
passion/desire due to karma resolves.
As for the gross body? That is the one weighed down and suffers most but thinks it suffers least)like there is something to win or gain in that round
and round) But that subtle/gross; depends on if one has stopped production with any intent; and that takes a whole lot of practice to move from one to
Eventually; full dissolution... first release is of the gross body of attachment of self; then gross attachment of others to the subtle or illusory
body. It is difficult to have compassion and empathy for such beings... that is typically why it is a good idea to teach; as it refines the path to
remove ignorance... however attachment to a path is still ignorance.
A point is all that is needed when anyone ever asks which way... mind the direction not the finger. At some point; later one may want to come back and
cut that damned finger off... however they were asking to go somewhere else were they not?
Don't follow me... as there is no me, just a moment in passing how long that lasts depends on another finger that may be held up. Oh the term peace
officer... back when as long as someone wasn't making a commotion? It was all good.
Now it is; wha'chall doing up in thar? In every single facet of life... exhausting.
