The Grand Dream is filled with villains and heroes and the stories and dramas are endless, like a company of actors who today play the scoundrel and tomorrow the saint on the same stage. The SELF is ever Empty, a blank screen on which the high emotions and deep sentimentality finds a brief moment for IT to ‘savor contrast’ … then release the experience to dissolve in the arms of detachment.
Identity with the stage and actors is inevitable and is inextricably bound together with suffering and bondage. Then, ultimately … fulfilled and satiated all identifications, expectations and attachments are dropped and the SELF returns to the Freedom IT ‘is’.
YOU Are the SELF.
