For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

The Ultimate Question and the Ultimate Answer

The Ultimate Question:

Does this provide me a feeling of separateness or wholeness?

Ask yourself about everything that occurs in front of you in life and every thought that bubbles up. Does this provide me a feeling of separateness or wholeness? If something is causing you a to feel separate then it is not a useful thought, drop it.

This can be known by us all who understand the unity of all things. Separateness is illusion so any thought or notion inducing that illusion can be dropped without a second thought.

Take a look at the news; It fills people with separation and a feeling of individual weakness. Take a look at the worlds of fashion, marketing, self improvement, weight loss, sex gain, good life, love life, wealth wins and religious sins. All amplify the self, the separate self, in a world of comparisons.

The ultimate answer;

No! Nothing can make me feel separate.
(Clause A, Unless I let it, so I don't, or I drop it).

So, here is the simple truth of it all.

Does this provide me a feeling of separateness or wholeness?

Yes, drop it.

or

No.

When No has become the living normality and yes's are dropped without consideration then enlightenment has been fully realised.

I feel you.

When I write, speak, or think about this 'spiritual' content, I feel more connected to the whole. I feel sharing this perspective is it's own reward.

My way is simple, no one can walk it.
Lau Tzu

The Universe is at peace, only some restless minds stir. The truth is there waiting for their readiness to find it.

Do not imagine that an integral being has the ambition of enlightening the unaware or raising worldly people to the divine realm. To her, there is no self and other, and hence no one to be raised; no heaven and hell, and hence no destination. Therefore her only concern is her own sincerity.
Hua Hu Ching (27)
