I see it in a way of that what we think we are and that what we think others are fade, while the conditioning of conscious stream flows.
This is one of the most interesting themes to me these days. So lets consider this deeper. Lets stay in the human realm but go out of our lives. Lets go back to your parents and those parents of a person close to you. We are something like mirrors or our parents usually. Some major personal characteristics we take from them. Often very bad things. Where did those bad things come from? Were your parents and your friends parents once innocent children? When did they become partly evil?
...they were tainted by the evil of their parents, and so on. So there is a generational wave of innocence to evil. Then go back 1 thousand, 2 thousand or 100 thousand generations, like octopus tenticles extending from your heart into the horrizon. Those are the 100s of thousands of lives that generally, simply repeated the cycle of innocents to evil. The idividuals fade completely but the process remains pristine, unchanging, human suffering.
Of course this is not rebirth, simply birth. But interesting to think about....
Then I cannot see how a hug would turn mind in delusion, many examples are there of genuine Love, hugs by enlightened nature ( even there is no expereince of being two, one or many). If care for a child, care for a sick or sad fellow, a hug for the old man, kindness and care to those we meet, would turn mind in delusion.
First off, clearly we both have discovered the final solution of selflessness. I am very very happy for you Muni. It is wonderful how the puzzle of life becomes easier to solve after we give up any notion of achievement in our name/being.
Second question, what do you mean by "would turn mind in delusion"? Do you mean show the mind its delusions?
My point about hugs is... ...lets fast forward to Buddhahood, we permiate all things without descrimination. You are now in Syria. There are two men both completely overrun with fear anxiety and aggression. One is a radical Muslim Soldier of Islam. The other is a right wing American who believes in Bikinis beer and freedom. They are at war with eachother and children are dying as a result (dont forget the tenticles above). Here the level of delusion aggression and violence is so high... ...consider the muslim, raping raping trying to build the Isis-man-state, with his curly dark hair, stinking of BO, seeking endless maskulinization ideal. a hug from you, a consideration like a mother, a warm hand on his cheak, as a seed....
Then the American so lost in the pride of his patriotism, he justifies the death of 100k in a land that is sovereign and not his. The enormity of the disrespect and negative action creates a black tar that seals him from the very life he is trying to live. And i think, first, warmth some tenderness around or next to him, maybe the warm blood of a child who has lost her life, that he has killed. But in any case something to bring warmth finally back to this man before he dies.
i dedicate this post to your happiness, the causes of your happiness, the absence of your suffering the causes of the absence of your suffering that we may not have too much attachment nor aversion. SAMAYAMANUPALAYA
