+ Being totally sad undoes what you believe to be

If you feel sad, you are sad and not trying to change this, you are what you are, which is such a relief, that you feel happy too. The graphic is grabbed from the web.


If you feel nothing but sad, there is no happiness to contrast it. Hence there is not something to define you as depressed, wherefore not only that is undone but also the belief that you are someone definitive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you seem to be upset about something, you may think it is best to take a step away from it, so you become an observer. But as observing something requires you to be separated from it and as separation is upsetting, to be an observant is not the solution. Besides, you only experience something to be upsetting because you try to disassociate yourself from it and thus to create separation, which you need to believe is irreversible, because that seems to establish you as an independent being with a will of your own.

There is no separation to heal. All that needs healing is the foolish belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

But separation is not real. It is not possible to be separated because that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than oneness. Yet it seems possible to believe that there is more than one, and that separation, therefore, is possible.

Detachment from feelings confirms you are someone separated from something else. Thus it reinforces the belief in separation instead of undoing itThe graphic is grabbed from the web.

This belief, however, entails a deep sorrow of loss, that most try to solve by getting more money, power, love, togetherness, for example, so they appear to be more happy than others in a world where there seems to be more than one. But they are just as sad because when you get more of something – including spiritual experiences or insights – the sense of separation is upheld.

When you totally acknowledge what you believe to be, your belief can be undone.

The solution is not to stop the desire for more. It is just another way of getting more. To not be sad you do nothing but being that. It leaves nothing to contrast what you are so it cannot be defined. Thus you are free from being sad or anything else. See also The acknowledgement of a feeling unveils its nothingness of bliss.


NOTES:

  • The above is written within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, it has nothing to do with the formlessness of oneness, but about being content with what you appear to be in such a world. Yet that may also be a door to the enlightenment of that which is one because feeling satisfied, you do not look for solutions, and without them, there are no problems, that seem to obscure the enlightenment of that which is one.
