BE STILL FROM THE DEEP CORE OUTWARD
THE BREATH THAT BREATHES ALL,
AS THE GREAT LISTENER AND ETERNAL NOW VOLITION
than can the state of deep sleep.
What spills over into the description is the sense of peace and contentment,
but the state itself cannot be defined.
Beyond merely pointing at it,

A Net of Jewels
It is true that every dogma crumbles sooner or later,
because reality will eventually disclose its falseness;
however, unless the basic delusion of it is seen for what it is,
it will be replaced by others.
What is this basic delusion?
Identification with thought.

here is the entire book
a situation in some way as undesirable or bad.
You resent a situation and that resentment personalizes it
and brings in the reactive me.
Naming and labeling are habitual but that habit can be broken.
Start practicing not naming with small things.
If you miss the plane, drop and break a cup, or slip and fall in the mud, can you refrain from naming the experience as bad or painful?
Can you immediately accept the “isness” of that moment?
Naming something as bad causes an emotional contraction within you.
When you let it be without naming it, enormous power is suddenly available to you. The contraction cuts you off from that power, the power of life itself.
Behind every condition, person or situation
that appears bad or evil,
lies concealed a deeper good.
That deeper good reveals itself to you, both within and without
through inner acceptance of what is.
“Resist not evil”
is one of the highest truths of humanity.
