When love and hate are both absent,
Everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction, however
and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
6th Century Philosopher
It truly is the little things that matter. The little distinctions that we make, the judgements and projections that take us away from truth, and speed us along the ego path, where the mind and its thoughts feed us agenda after agenda. When we say “I love this”, or “I hate that”, what are we really thinking ? Look how we are creating divisions in our world, barriers to our true understanding.
So often, we love what we sense we are lacking in ourselves, and we hate what we know we hold in our hearts. But we never admit that to ourselves. Love and hate are just divisions. Just ego projections. No more. No less. If we honestly open our hearts, both will disappear in a puff of truth.
