If Phenomena Were Real
It takes time to get one’s head around this!
If all phenomena were real,
then phenomena would be permanent, andnever change.
Everything would be frozen.
If phenomena changes,
then phenomena has no permanent reality
all of creation is an illusion.
Why would anyone create an illusion?
It takes time to get one’s head around this,
as it is significant in teaching us what, in fact, reality is.
We act as if everything is real, important, and everlasting.
We become attached,
and then upset when that phenomena is taken away,
or proven to be an illusion.
We value love, don’t we?
But is that love or is that clinging desire?
Is it more for our benefit
than for the benefit of another?
True love does not cling.
True love is detached
because it wants nothing in return.
Love isn’t 50/50; it’s 100%
True love is only in the moment now, and does not linger.
If it lingers, it turns into emotions and suffering – and even hatred.
All this because we think things are real!
In truth, reality is that which sees, recognises and realises
the reality within us all,
and that is the timeless reality of pure consciousness.
Love is carefree.
It is dropped at every moment
for the next moment of love to be fresh, without residue.
That’s the real thing!
