Self-Contraction Is Fundamental Pain
The self-contraction itself is fundamental pain altogether, disturbance altogether, and ordinary life is motivated by it, because it is so profound, and it is detached from the fundamental Reality, the Divine Reality.
It is lost in maya, in appearances, presumptions, even imagining that you are seeing the room, whereas in fact youre just seeing one little view.
So it’s confusing.
You’re not seeing Reality, then.
You’re seeing an appearance associated with your own egoity.
You can’t be in another position.
You can’t be in the position of the totality of the room.
What position are you in?
Some self-enclosure of thoughts and perceptions.
–Adi Da Samraj, 1995
