When The Truth Isn’t Recognised
The truth of our being may not register with everyone. Years ago, my wife and I attended a lecture by the Dalai Lama, and we both fell asleep. It wasn’t that we weren’t interested; it was as if someone was talking about an extra colour in the rainbow which we hadn’t registered before.
So now we can empathise when people don’t ‘get it’, when it seems so obvious.
Bombarded with spurious, fake, false information about life, it can seem truly difficult to see the simple answer to everything – and just saying that can go right over people’s head.
The simple answer is the essence of consciousness that just sees.
When dealing with others, all we can do is stand firm and be kind and patient, able to accept or tolerate delays, problems and suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious. This process is incredibly instructive and challenging, and establishes true compassion.
Actually … this is the path to enlightenment.
