      "This book is written from love to love. It is a daily
      reminder of what you already know. Everything
      a perfect expression of nothing, which is to say that
      the boundary between everything and nothing is
      real. There is only ‘what is.’ That is love."

      Resistance in the mirror of relationship
       
      Each relationship is an opportunity to see whether
      you are at war with life and others. If a person walks
      up to talk to you today, it is an invitation to allow
      awareness to fully welcome that person, to listen
      intimately to what she is saying, and to be the space
      in which she is speaking. This allowing is not a
      doing. It is a present recognition that awareness is
      always and already open, loving and compassionate.
      If there is resistance within you to the person or
      what she is doing or saying, the person is acting
      as a mirror in which your own resistance is being
      revealed. This person is showing you your illusion of
      separateness. You are living in a conceptual dream
      called self v. other.
       
      When you encounter this "other" today (and
      the other includes every manifest object that
      appears in awareness) notice any corresponding
      resistance in the form of irritation, frustration,
      unease, uncomfortableness, anger, or resentment. In
      allowing your relationship to people, situations, and
      things to be a mirror in which your own resistance is
      being reflected back to you, the possibility of waking
      up out of that resistance is available.

      Roles
       
      When you identify with a role, you cannot see your
      own identification. You are that role. Perhaps
      you are lost in your role as a doctor, secretary, or
      salesman. Or perhaps you are lost in some other role
      such as recovering addict, cancer survivor, victim, codependent,
      or even brother or parent.
       
      Roles are false, egoic identities. When you are
      lost in a role, the spirit is not free to react naturally
      and spontaneously to life. You are lost in a past
      image of yourself. You act and react within the
      pattern of that past image. You tend to treat others
      according to their roles and how they relate to your
      role. If you are a doctor, you see only patients. If
      you are a salesman, you see only customers. If you
      are a mother, you see only children. Others people
      simply reflect back to you your particular role, which
      strengthens the role. There is no true relationship
      when images are relating to images.
       
      In present moment awareness, there is freedom
      from all roles, identities, images, and self-concepts.
      You are no longer living life through rigid thought
      patterns of the past.You are free to respond to life
      intelligently, naturally, and spontaneously.When you
      notice each role you are playing in the moment you
      play it, you are present.You are transcending that
      role.This allows others the freedom to no longer
      react from their roles.True relationship is then
      possible.
