“Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our “emptiness”. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there.”

EMPTINESS … REALIZED AND DISPLAYED EMOTIONALLY
EMOTIONS … WHERE HUMAN CONDITION MEETS HUMAN EXPERIENCE
By learning how to listen to your body … your mind’s only connection to material reality … you become more in touch with how this impermanent reality relates the presence of its ongoing naked change experience to your human condition. Inward self-deliberation … meditation.
When shifting waking awareness into the ticktock activity of the flesh, an individual takes their thoughts away from ego-fed emotionally spun ongoing loops of regret or guilt of the past or worry about future times. The consciousness slides into what Elkhart Tolle refers to being the collective consciousness that all humans are a part of.
This collective consciousness only makes itself known in the present moment … in between the ticks of time’s clock that just keeps unwinding the present moment as the universe continually expands. Siddhartha describes how to access this same white light arena in his 8 folds in the pathway to enlightment as having the right effort (mental) and the right awareness (focus).
Theology short circuits this understanding by promising the sudden emotional bliss brought on sometime after dying.
We become more aware of how we “fit in.” The deeper understanding is calming as our “emptiness” dissipates bit by bit.
UNDERSTANDING BRINGS EMOTIONAL BLISS … THEOLOGY CALLS IT HEAVENLY
Each individual’s life goal is to somehow self-train a waking understanding of nature’s relational justice matrix and how it manages to generate emotional harmony in today’s world.
Understanding nature’s principles and how they affect each emotion enlightens an individual to the understanding awareness of the same afterlife emotional bliss that the religious templates promise and that realists seek to achieve while living.
Learning the body-speak language metered in the body’s sensual braille opens the primal coupling between an individual’s innate subconscious life principle awareness to their unknowing waking consciousness. An individual can self-train the wisdom that replaces the ignorance that causes their emptiness-spun suffering. They learn to better understand those principles that unconditionally without prejudice rule the relational outcomes of everything that has affect on an individual’s life experience.
“It’s the principle of the thing.”
