@Mikael89 That you see hate in it is the hate you project into it.

It takes a special kind of ignornace to view life -- the greatest miracle -- as hate.

Look at a butterfly. How can you call it anything but Love?

@Leo Gura

What is the difference between attention and love?


The mind has no answers and the heart has no questions.

There's not much connection in my mind between the two.

Okay but let's face it.. You are also working your ass off to get enlightened/to become Love. So that indicates that you probably don't think life and everything is perfect.

You desire enlightenment. So once you have attained it.. I doubt you'd like to get kicked out of/kick yourself out of enlightenment again?

That you call a butterfly Love is maybe just a emotion thing for you. 

A butterfly is a object of perception which will pass. Impermanent. The world is a dream.

@Mikael89 You are quoting authorities without direct consciousness of what is being talked about.

This will not work.

You are misunderstanding the people whom you are quoting.

You are That infinite Love right now You are everything. You can't escape Truth. All powerfull Consciousness. 

@Leo Gura

What about survival of self image? People to keep their own delusion Will jepardize survival of body. 

Keeping yourself devoid from Source apparently keeps You in advantage in this society. But it brings all kind of pathologies and suffering. Of course If You want to stay in hell and keep playing small game of me and others. To beleive That You are different and separated and all that comes with it. For me to ask You this I am engaging in small game that's how Tricky this is. There is a agenda of gaining knowladge so ego. 

Source is Selfless and it will destroy egotism completely that's why devils are afraid. 

How devil stay devil. It inverts Truth upside down. By beleiving he is aware and That awareness is his perception.

Do we direct love?

You can look around the room and love any object you notice. Or love the room as a whole.

It doesn't really matter whether you do it or don't. The room is still made of Love.

You can even hate the room.

You don't have to notice love or feel love for Love to be the substrate of everything. In the same way that you don't have to think about atoms or feel atoms for atoms to do their job. If you see an atom in a microscope, that's a bonus, but it doesn't really matter from the universe's perspective.

Which is why you can deny Love, and it doesn't bother God one bit. The denial of Love is itself but one more instance of God's Love!

After "my" awakening  i realized  there is something more, deeper than self inquiry 

In my humble opinion whole body must be healed and all chakras purified to get at the higher level 

am i right @Leo Gura

In the end, the only thing you will ever discover are deeper aspects of yourself. There is nothing but SELF here.

But there are an enormous number of aspects of Self and degrees of comprehension of Self.

I doubt that self-inquiry will be sufficient for most people to reach all those aspects and degrees.

Healing and purifying the body & mind is important for most people I feel.

Self-inquiry is great, but there is also more to this work than merely awakening.

My approach to this work is extremely broad. Far broader than any orthodox teaching you'll find in Buddhism, Advaita, yoga, or any other school.

How can it be Love when it doesn't show itself even when you ask it to show itself?

- - - - - - - -

So this is what happened: God was all Love, everything was amazing, zero problems, pure bliss, but then He got the "brilliant idea" that He must "share it with others", so he created a infinite amount of suffering beings, just so they can suffer and then come back to Love?

Well, imo that doesn't make much sense.

What's the point in creating a infinite amount of suffering beings?

Ik it's not the topic but I've always wanted to know what true love meant in intimate relations and friendships 

@d0ornokey Many people think love is a feeling. It cant be merely a feeling because certain drugs can manipulate your feelings of love.

Love is a choice. It is action. It is a decision to serve the other person for their best and highest good, despite your feelings. Feelings do not minimize real love.

Many relationships suffer because people wait for the feelings to show up to express love.

Hopefully, the other person is moving in that direction too or it will be unbalanced.

@Mikael89 And it never will make sense to you until you have some profound, reality-shattering awakenings.

So I will no long bother explaining it to you. You must do the work. I spoil you with way too much explanation. It makes you weak and lazy.

@Leo Gura

How would you "describe" or "position" Love relative to Being?

I have experiences (from where afterwards I create certain concepts of it) of what Being is, and also of Being Love.

I can't however pinpoint them like I would regarding the Absolute and the relative.

❤️🙏


Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

I agree with @bensenbiz

@Mikael89 I like the quote from Ralph Waldo

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

Just because you are experiencing suffering doesn’t mean everyone else is, plus even if you do, suffering is part of life, you can’t experience bliss and happiness without darkness, this is duality. A baby coming out of the womb doesn’t think about the pain, there is a force behind it, like everything else in the universe, we can’t evolve without suffering, and I call this force love, it’s the thing that keeps us going, it’s evolution, it’s not always pretty, evolution and awakening happen in the level of oneness, the separation felt by the ego is what causes suffering, when you think you are all alone and is a poor little thing separated from the whole world, if you live your life with faith and surrender there will be no suffering, that’s what Leo’s last video is about, letting go and trusting the universe.

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

@Leo Gura This is kind of a tecnicality but... in the conversations with god books Neale talks about not killing under any circumstance.  I think he is talking about a sort of Obi One Kenobi thing like when he lets Darth Vader kill him.

I kind of agree with you that sometimes you got to kill if pushed to the limits.

What do you think about this?   How do you reconcile this difference?

And billions of other POVs. And you say "there is no suffering"..

When you desperately have to be right: just ignore/deny the reality of billions of beings.

That kind of insanity makes me feel sick in the stomach.

No, but many many more do.

Yes you said it: duality. Bravo.
