Both through experience and logic, "the samadhi experience of oneness" is
non-dualistic and all-inclusive. Which means it can't be negated or
exclusive of anything, including suffering, thought, or anything that exists.
It's not an polarized either/or condition.
My ego was there when I merged with the consciousness of the samahi-trees and
it was there the next day when I got smashed by the realization that so many
were being killed for such idiotic purposes. I could have sworn that what I
felt for the trees on both days was love, but what does an ego-ramus like me
Another thing: "ego" and "attachment" are primarily Eastern Patriarchal
religious terms. I notice they get hurled around liberally here, as if we
all agree that they're serious spiritual defects/obstacles. If someone were
to say, "Hey, that's a sin" or "You're violating the Sabbath day!" wouldn't
most people here consider that a matter of personal religious belief?
Having a self (aka "ego") in relationship (aka "attachment") to other
incarnate beings in this world (aka "gross plane") is considered an honorable
and positive thing in the indigenous/shamanic traditions.
