In a literal sense we don't get rid of anything. The blocks and beliefs that
slice and dice are seen to be unreal. They never were.

I did not get rid of anything. True. It was never there to be gotten rid of.

I use the pronoun 'we' not in the sense of multiplicity. It's difficult to
describe what I refer to with words, but I use 'we' because it suggests total
inclusiveness. I do not use the word in the traditional sense that perpetuates 'different'

Depends who we are.

Are you absolutely certain? Can you testify to the experience of all of us?
Is this the only circumstance when timelessness can be experienced?

I can see how one can perceive what I refer to as an abstraction.
We do this all our lives.

Nothing was dismissed.

I have been referring to the confusion of our own identity.

The illusion of fear can only be seen as illusion once it is embraced.

I could do far worse. I could cater to illusion.

Ask the Neediness that.

Again, ask your Neediness...

Love your hardness and take your bitterness out for a walk. Cradle it like
a tender newborn and you may find your anger has grown into something beautiful.

I wouldn't vote for a promiscuous man either.
