Mysteries of reality number sixteen
What reason do you have for getting up in the morning and preparing for that by a good night sleep. Our job as human beings is to embrace the essence which vitalises the energy surrounding us. Embracing the other crushes selfishness naturally. The other is what it's all about. The easiest way to forget self is to remember that other. It is best to start this process as a child, to discipline yourself to remember your mother works, as we have proven. My good student practiced meditation one and a half hours every day, breathing in his mother's suffering and breathing out love. He did this for 10 years. Close to the end he saved her life from drowning and joined her spiritually completely as she died in his arms. This is truly forgetting self and remembering the other, in fact the other that brought you to life. What could there be that is more important or more fortunate for you to hear the truth and great beauty of this tale. That lesson is for life and that understanding is your gift to all the others you come across. You cannot count the cost because the cost is totality. Lose yourself in this and you find the reality that impels you forwards and the love that develops from care.
