Face to Face

Why did God split into two? Playing hide and seek with himself? Well, who cares. All just concepts. But... something real seems to be happening, I can feel it in myself, in the world... a ripening, maturing, a coming together? God is finding himself again? This "I" and this "not-I", me and the world, subject and object, I feel we are face to face in front of each other, RIGHT NOW, looking at each other but not really seeing that we are looking at our our own self, listening to each other but not hearing that we are listening to our own self, talking to each other but not recognizing that we are talking to ourselves, making love to each other without realizing that the other is our own self, writing comments on some website without understanding that we write to ourselves..and yet, slowly consciousness and awareness are creeping in and the light shines through the cracks and something stirs. Suddenly or gradually... recognition comes... the world in front of me, face to face with me, always.., "my God", it's me, ME, nothing else... we have been together all that time, I didn't know that you are me, I was asleep...now awake, you are me,no more subject/object, all one... a concept has kept us apart, there is no "ego", me is me, the world is me ..and as we fuse together again only God remains and in God the me is just meing, the world is worlding, the body is bodying, the tree is treeing... the butterfly has emerged and the waves are just waving in the ocean and all is exactly right and perfect just as it is. And... if there is no time and no distance between us...

Not me not him

I found out that the more efficient way for me to experience the oneness is not to try to force myself to feel as I am also the other (which I can only do conceptually and even this to a limited extent) but to feel that I am also not me. It takes me somehow backward to experiencing being something which is not this or that, not me or the other and it has a longterm effect on how I later on the day perceive reality.

Nice, Maya. Thanks.

And John, yes, perhaps contrary to my expectations, there is no sense of merging with anything in any way. Rather, all of it is fading, both me and others. Others are becoming sort of 'mechanical' looking in a way, or what I like to call zombies, sleepwalking, unconscious. Oddly, it's also not too disconcerting, or maybe I'm just getting used to it.

Beautiful...

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, standing between you and the world. You are in direct contact; neither perceiver nor perceived, but just This.

Aware of the whole of consciousness, both 'inner' and 'outer' simultaneously, a single Seeing Eye. There is nothing but This.

Everything that ever happened, happened Here. Everything that ever will happen, will happen Here. Everything is happening Here. There is only This.

Yes, there's nothing but flow... no 'things'. A stream of events. Every moment new.
