Not to mention the happy meditators who
have to make sure you understand how realized and in bliss
they are, how deep from the silence they are
speaking, how really truly real is their realization --
Just so you know that it's just like Ramana said,
and how amazing it is to realize that it's
just like he said -- and if you don't get that,
you are going to get the subtle love darts
intended to bring you down some notches -- every time.
Confronting people about self-satisfaction and
smug bullshit is a losing proposition -- they
will keep on with what keeps them feeling good
about themselves, and stick it to ya in return --
It's remarkable how the same ploy gets played again
and again and again ...
That's all selves are is these ploys, so that's the last thing
anyone is going to look into.
The spiritual ploys somehow seem the worst of all, as
bad as all the other ploys can be. There is something
particularly nasty, vicious, and self-serving about
the spiritualized self-ploys. I think it's because
all the knives have to be covered up with lots
of gooey love and wisdom.
A favorite seems to be:
It's fine with me to lose my self as long as I can
tell everyone how deep from silence I'm speaking, or
the amazing love bliss I now have, and we get
to smugly congratulate and reinforce one another --
and so on.
But to look into that "act" and see that it's just
another version of self -- that would be to suffer
a real loss ...
And that's the last thing any of these self-proclaimed
realizers living in contentment and bliss want ...
The claim of a loss that made me a special realizer
living deep in silent bliss love
is so much easier to deal with,
and then I get to keep the suffering and call
it blissful silence ... what could be better?

window of opportunity opens up and i get to goof around, you know
evrytime i say something negative or hurtful it causes me pain..
baba hari dass tells me to love God and love myself and i will see
love everywhere...when i do this love god and love myself it really
happens, i see love everywhere,,,but when i forget god and forget
myself and look at negativity it's like that stone that catches all
the mossss rolling down the hill,,,
