LATEST DIALOGUES Dismantling the Fantasy

Dismantling-the-Fantasy

“Our appearance, direction, and actions simply happen. This realization is freedom. From that point on, there is no meditator, no meditation, no doing, no knowing, and no realization. There is only a mysterious happening that can’t be understood in any way. It becomes obvious there has never been anything else.

“This is a complete opening to the unformed, the undirected, the uncontrolled, the unexpected, and the unpredictable. This openness is often called love. In this, you are not a body; you are not a mind; there is only love.

“This love is not some cold, intellectual understanding; it’s an openness of heart. This love is not an aching, desire-filled attachment to a person, a possession, an idea, a cause, a career, a practice, or an understanding.

“This love is not some romantic myth of everyone embracing and singing the same song. Instead, it’s a truly sensitive vulnerability to what is.

“Ideas only go so far. At some point, the heart may open to the totally indefinable, unpredictable, and often unwanted movement that life is. Love is that openness of heart.”

Darryl Bailey, from his book Dismantling the Fantasy published by Non-duality Press

    The cutting-edge needs new straight-wire ways of achieving non duality so needed in our world. Or does the heart-felt desire for it always comes first?
