THE OPPOSITE OF ABSOLUTE IS LIMITED

The Opposite Of Absolute Is Limited

The opposite of the word ‘absolute’ is the word ‘limited’.
This is why we speak of absolute truth and relative/limited truth.
One is our true reality, and the other is our conventional reality.
An absolute reality is complete freedom. A relative reality is partial.

Absolute: Not being dependent on anything else = non-duality.
Relative: Relating to something else = duality.

Non-duality is just seeing, pure seeing, pure consciousness, no seer, no time delay.
Duality is constantly relating to things – me and the object – requiring time to judge whether good or bad.

We need a little I or ego to function, but when the ego – which consciousness clinging to concepts – becomes overwhelming, we (consciousness) lose all sense of absolute reality. The middle way is not too tight and not too loose.

The test is noticing this, and re-addressing the balance.
Ordinarily, we swing in large strokes like a weapon.
Gradually, the swinging reduces until it is imperceptible.

Evolution is from coarse to fine.
