One Touch Of Nature Makes The Whole World Kin.

You are whole, complete, and beautiful, just as you are. The ins and outs and ups and downs of the story of your life are but a tiny part of what you are. You are the light that lets the story project; you are the timeless, infinite presence that mysteriously conjures something of nothing. You know this; you are this. Everything you see, hear, feel, touch, taste, smell and think is you; you are what you apprehend; the little construct usually labeled "you" is just a convenience. No one can tell you that you are less than infinite, less than complete, less than perfect; you are love itself, playing at duality, delighting in existence for its own sake. Love is you, and you are everything.

Words are written, no one prints them out. No one will be printing for awhile, as apparently, no one is going camping for ten days, in the story that seems to unfold at any rate! Nothing can go wrong in the "meantime," as nothing is happening; enjoy the appearance in my more-obvious-than-usual absence.

Love, Suzanne

The story seems to unfold in a lively fashion, punctuated by swarms of ladybugs.

A week ago I was walking through swarms of ladybugs here in southern Sweden. Couldn't tell what direction they were heading, but it may well have been westward... :)

North Norfolk thanks you, Svante!

You are so welcome, North Norfolk! :)

Hi Suzanne,

just a question! so, the I has got it all, it is all completely there - the understanding of it that is.
the I gave up, then the I let go, completely gave into it, accepting that this moment is this moment, as you may have read on my last post. But I guess it could not have been completely because still there is a nagging feeling that something will happen, a happening will happen in the future. Like you, and your episode with the butcher's knife, there is a belief that a clarity of seeing will come at a future date.

So, my question, did the 'you' give up thinking that at a later date this clarity would appear (sounds crazy doesn't it?) or did you absolutely without a shadow of doubt 'know' that this is all there is and will be and has ever been? All expectation fell away and then have the clarity moment out of the blue?

Because at the moment, I am absolutely bugged by the idea that there is this clarity moment, which will come about when the I dissolves, something that hasn't happened yet, that will only happen if the I gives up on it all, for REAL. But then, how can the I give it up for real in order to get clarity sometime in the future??

love Lune x

Hi Lune,

The story of me in the kitchen with a knife is just that - a story, arising in wholeness. It was just what seemed to be happening. It really didn't have a lot to do with clear seeing, it was a story of clear seeing; and if there was some kind of recognition, or coming home, it had to do with understanding that what it is I had been looking for was just what is, just as it is. If, indeed, I had been looking. Concepts like: there is nothing wrong with duality, there is nothing wrong with whatever the manifestation, or appearance, or whatever we're calling it today, seems to be doing, including doubt, questioning and the feeling that something will happen in the "future" that will bring about some kind of final revelation and bliss or whatever. However, those kind of thoughts don't seem to come up anymore. There really isn't a process, there is no time for a process to unfold; but it can seem that there is a process of deepening, that whatever exists is truly the only thing that is, and includes all the thoughts and feelings, which only ever are happening now. A deepening that seems to reveal "what is" as more and more beautiful, absolutely whole, completely what it is, and the only thing that is. What looks, is the only constant; the still point, consciousness, "I am", presence, whatever you care to label it. Nothing is a mistake, not even incongruous expectations. Such expectations arise and fall, or seem to, like everything else. There is nothing wrong with being bugged. The "I" completely dissolving is just the story of the "I" completely dissolving, no matter how to the point that story seems to be. You are where you are, and that is perfect, no matter how it seems. "I" is oneness, "I-ing". Nothing wrong with it at all.

I doubt if that helps, but it's what seems to be coming out of the old keyboard this morning!

Love, Suzanne.

And yet there is no deepening.its really popping out of the idea that evolution makes any sence at all.
nothing happened and things get very ordinary.

No One In Particular said...

No, there's no deepening, but there seems to be. The paradox is the fun!

Love, or whatever you care to label it. How about Fred? Can we all talk about Fredness for a day?

Svante Odmark said...

Yep, with no "seemingness" to the fact of "no deepening", there wouldn't be any seeming one (or two) to have fun! There wouldn't be much of a Life at all - no texture to bite into, no context to seemingly deepen in, no anything... The creative tension between the no deeepening and seeming deepening is where the juice is, isn't it?

Most glorious, this seems.

Great summer here too!

No One In Particular said...

Svante, yes. Rian, glad your holidays are seeming/being/whatevering in an apparently great way!

Lune said...

the question kinda got answered for me this morning, and yes, the story kinda dissolving into the deepening (which doesn't exist), funny how that happens isn't it?

thank you for the answer, what seemed to come up from the old keyboard was spot on in an unknowing kinda way,
