This whole "individuality is sufferance" is ridiculous!
Have you ever kissed another? Made love? Had a long uncontrolled fit of laughter with a good friend?
Held a child and smelled their hair, stroked their soft cheek? Held hands with another while watching a sunset? Shared a warm smile with a
Have you ever tried waterskiing? Snow skiing, playing football, jumping on a trampoline, riding a skateboard, a horse, a bicycle? Playing a musical
instrument? Singing? Painting, drawing, dancing....?
-these wonderful experiences are all only possible through individuality. Through separation, so that we can feel the boundries of self and other come
into contact (whether that be physically or mentally). These are impossible experiences if individual awareness is not present.
Also, ambiguity is totally possible.. though apparently some people have a harder time getting used to it, but you can be in an experience of
individual self, and total communion with All, at the same time
It enhances the experience, the kiss, the smile, the touching of hands... one that is experiencing as two!
There is sometimes discomfort and pain too- you can feel the tire roll over your toe, the lovers rejection, the sharp elbow of the stranger.
When you love those experiences as much as the pleasures, then something wonderful happens...
You can feel the pain of others (through this oneness) and not
feel compelled to fight it- through either wanting to change their state, or
fleeing into individualization -only.
Seriously, it is something to consider! Some people are better off (for themselves, and for others) remaining in a sense of separation only as long as
they cannot yet accept the full spectrum of physical emotion, and sensation, and recognize the beauty in it ALL.
Once you can, you can retain that communion (along with sefl awareness) and not have any personal preference as to what others experience, do , or
If they ask for help with their pain or discomfort, then you see no reason not to help- but likewise, if they do not want it (for sometimes, their
subconscious has reasons for lessons;...) then you can feel fine respecting that.
