we are in this state, when we don't think...
the world is only real when we are in love.
when we think, the eyes become clouded and the world looks different.
we become familar with the way it looks because we are most always thinking.
yes, forgiving the other is forgiving ourselves
but moving to forgive the other can lead one further away from oneself
into more forgivingnesses... into forgiving the world... into other ego creations.
forgiving ourself is forgiving the other
it is a consequence
for self is the other...
it can more easily lead one back home.
just by observing the breath... breathing normally... the incoming and the outgoing breath...
just simply watching the breath... the inhalation... the exhalation... and it changes... just by watching it.
breathing becomes more natural... when thoughts subside... and only watching is happening... and the world becomes more real.
when mind enters in... it changes back again... as one moves further away.
try it, to see what i say...
