      On the other hand...

      The sharp pain of stubbing
      my toe this morning may
      be totally discrete and
      have no relevance to any
      other event, dimension,
      connectivity, level of
      consciousness, or anything
      else anywhere, at any time.

      Did anyone else feel it?
      Or can I confidently claim
      it as "my" event?

      Though the seeming "nondual pristine truth"
      can only be directly experienced...
      we have only one instrument for
      experiencing "it". Reach for the brass
      ring of awakening...cause
      there's only one way off this
      merrry-go-round of life. But
      keep in mind...

      Sandeep's enlightened view my be
      only another compellingly real...
      delusion, conjured up by
      another out-of-the-box clever
      mind, as well. An ego, intent
      on philosophically puffing itself
      up beyond mere mortal reckoning.

      The imprecision of words
      leads us to use seemingly
      nonsensical terms (ummmmm?
      no sense!)) of "no self" and
      "illusory" physical matter (maya)...
      and "awakening", the Buddhist
      "emptiness that is not nothing"...
      and on and on.

      Your discrete experiences are
      yours and yours to enjoy. Enjoy,
      and spread the joy. Write on.
