Re: Dealing with 'others'.......
wouldn't even call it 'accepting' them
the way they are,
because there is nothing
to accept. It is more about
the fact that it becomes so
obvious that every reaction of mine
exactly the response that it solicits.
The initiating input--->reaction ----->
response to the reaction,................this is happening all the
time,.....so long the two/multiple instruments in question, are
Along with this let's say,...
primary functioning, ........there is a secondary functioning, that of the
individual investments, in the reaction and in the response.
And hence the ado of the secondary
Whether that ado has got silenced or
is thriving at it's best,..............the primary functioning, continues in
the moment, moment to moment to moment.
All issues, whether they are coloured as a seeking for a
system of ethical behaviour, or whatever camouflaging device
.....is the ado of the secondary
And is nothing but the ado, of
a rooster, agonizing the whole night, as to whether it will be able to get
up in time, in the morning, to crow the sun to rise.
The degree to which there is secondary functioning
informs/colors the interpretation of the primary functioning,
becomes an 'experience'.
If there is little or no secondary functioning,
there is little or no interpretation or 'experience of'
'stewing about' whatever it is.

And so, it really does becomes like
there is no 'them'--
just parts of one big "I".......
Not even parts, Freyja, for that would lend them
some semblence of independent existence.
Pieces of a jigsaw puzzle,......which independently
have an existence and then come together to form the total
is the very Whole, complete.
The "wave" in
the cup of your hand,.......is the Ocean.
The dreamed-up Freyja, struggling with issues in a
dream-sequence,........is nothing but the dreaming Freya, lying blissfully
in a Noor Jahan bed.
.....where all the characters in the dream are but
playing pieces, on the chessboard of my
as is the case of the waking dream.
Just to ante up "the interesting factor",......... I forget
that it's all my doing,......whether it is the waking dream or the sleeping
....and "become" all my desires and the instruments through
which the desires unfold.
And since, I cannot really forget, .........I also remain the
witness to what I have become.
The immanence and the
