What Remains?

    The change that has taken place here, what is it? There's been a change that no one else perceives here in the writer, and that's because apparent others perceive an apparent Doug from their position as an individual person, which (as we discovered in the last post on this Blog) is an nth of a degree away from this, from simply being what is unfolding . . .

What has changed? "Everything and yet, paradoxically, nothing" - is the answer.

The change is love. I'm in Love. With Life. With Life in it's totality. With Life with a capital L - Yes, I'm in Love with Life - In fact, I am Love, and yet all there is is Love - everything unfolding is Love in action. Even simply sitting on a chair, or feeling tired - sleepy or sleeping - it's all a love affair with being alive. All of it. Ready for the shock now? Work, yes even getting up at the crack of dawn (I do hope Dawn doesn't mind ;-) and going to work - even that is a part of the love affair that is life unfolding. Truly amazing it is too. Life is full of wonder now in a way that it wasn't previously . . . even when doing those seemingly mundane jobs like washing up or gardening, Love is.

When the sense of 'I' disappeared something was here ready and waiting to reveal itself; it was always here, although obscured by something unreal - the unreality that is the conditioned-individuated personality. The personality was the obstacle.

The intriguing aspect here is that real Love, which is unconditioned, unconditional and simply flows freely, has no individuality whatsoever . . . None! Zilch my friend, nada, zip, in fact Zippo-diddly-squat - to be exact! It simply is.

"Is what?"

Love simply is whatever is unfolding as is. It's everything all at once, Smack - *BANG* - Wallop this is it - and yet it includes every aspect of life - yes, even what might be perceived as painful by the conditioned mind. This Love is completely, in a total sense, impersonal. And yet it is all encompassing - hence it is also known as 0neness. This Love is a Love for everything all at once, for it is Love itself - the Lover - The 0ne.

Love is being, pure and simple presence unfolding, and it is beautiful beyond compare haha, haaaaa - oh yeahhhhh. It is what you are. It is what you are when you get out of the way, when you are no more: You being the conditioned person, the individual whom lives separately and apart from others, even amidst, seemingly, a loving relationship.

Ironically, 0ne can't tell you to Love unconditionally, you can't be told, because this love has nothing to do with you, or what you want or don't want. What do you want, a manual, a set of instructions maybe? Or a demonstration of unconditional Love? Sorry, no can do!

So, what has happened here within the writer? Nothing, and yet everything has changed, why, how? Let go of the questions, let go of the questioner, and what remains? Not till all your questions have been asked and answered can 0ne do that. If questions exist within you, and you don't ask them, then you'll remain the questioner and miss your lover! Your lover being a greater reality than the individuated personality can ever imagine, or experience whilst lost in the conditioned mind. And yet life goes on exactly as it did before.

Arguments can happen here, yes, sometimes there is even tiredness and irritability unfolding here, but there is no attachment to it - no overwhelming sense of defensiveness - no sense of emotional identity invested in it - none. I repeat, everything is exactly as it was previously - but now, even though the lights are on brighter than ever, there's no one home. Meaning? Meaning there is no personally attached individual holding on like grim death to a conditioned attitude, belief or opinion - that's all dead and gone. But 0ne can stand 0ne's ground, 0ne can stand up for what is real and true - and 0ne does.

     The fact is there are no more questions here within the writer, and no more seeking, for it is the seeker that is dead. The seeker, he whom needed to know and understand his purpose and life's meaning has fallen on his sword - the dragon is dead! What remains is a love affair with life, what remains is unconditional Love.
