Is it truly ignorance or is it innocence?
If we knew any better, would we not have done better?
Whether to come again
from ancient lifetimes and countless rebirths
to learn, to understand, to realise;
and then once again
to love, and love and love
unconditionally, boundlessly, limitlessly
at least for one moment…
just for the sake of loving
is it not enough?

It has been said before
“you can love, but there is no need to attach”.

After that, does it mean
where there is no more attachment,
there is no more love, no need to have?

Untrue that there is no love, yet true that there is no need to have
for there will just be love whether there is having or not having going on.

Paradoxically, it is That what the Masters talk about
where there is no need to have
but you can have when and if it arrives at your door
when you are That as you are That.

For you see, when you are That, as you are That
how can it not arrive at your door for you to have if what you are is That
since what you wish to have is simply just a symbol of That anyway.

Yet its purpose is only, once again
to love, love and love
unconditionally, boundlessly, limitlessly
because you are That
fortunately, and unfortunately
and there is really nothing you can do about it;
only perhaps, forgotten.

To finally have or not have, has nothing to do with whether it is resolved, or not
though at some surface or sub-surface level, that seems to be true;
but becomes a bonus or a blessing or simply an emblem,
arising from completion.

Yet completion may or may not mean, to have or not to have.
Why draw a line?

As,
to have but need to have, is as good as not having;
to not have when I can have, is too, as good as not having.

So whether together or apart, does it matter?
If it is a blessing to be together, why not?
Yet, if together but apart, then what use is it to be together?
Still, to be apart does it mean not together?

If I am guilty of having, then what is the use of having?
If I am guilty of not having, then why don’t I have?
Can I lose anything that I do not have?
Yet, can I lose anything that I already have?

I love you anyway, even if I am upset.
I love you anyway, even if I believe I am upset with you.
Just because I am upset, or believe I am upset with you
does not mean that I do not love you anyway
although I might like to believe that, and behave that way
yesterday.

And you will notice somehow, how I love you anyway today,
is quite different from the way I love you anyway yesterday.

Today,
I love you anyway, because I realised I no longer need to have you or not have you.
I love you anyway, because I realised I do not have the choice of not loving you.
I love you anyway, because I realised there is no longer the I and the you which once had me fooled how for one instance,
I could not love you just by having or not having you.
I love you anyway, because I have walked internally and the veil of illusions have been lifted somehow
leaving me with humility, freedom and yes, That.

Today,
I love you anyway, because…
and it is just because…
beyond comprehension
beyond thinking
beyond will
and I so thank God for it.

So, it is true that I don’t need to have,
but it’d be nice to have anyway
if and when the having comes my way
eventually, or not.

I am already That
So I don’t really need That
But when That comes
Why not have That anyway?

    What a beautiful expression..
    Very timely as it reminds me once again what this ‘road’ is all about..
    And we actually do forget..
    Depressed states of minds are visiting and reading your blog never fails to remind me to remember.
    Thanks for all THAT and please continue to give us more of THAT until we become THAT…
    Ondeway.. ondeway….

      You can only receive That, when you are That.
      If you are not That, how could you ever know that it is That that I give?

      Sounds like, you are already That, my That… 🙂

    Agree with you.

    2) Yet, if together but apart, then what use is it to be together?
    I do not know if I should stay any longer to grow a relationship when I do not feel the togetherness anymore. I used to have the thought of doing things together means happiness & acceptance. I still hold on to this concept & had a breakdown when we no longer doing things together.

    3) Still, to be apart does it mean not together?
    Why do I feel that apart means not together anymore? What is happening in my space?

      1) Guess I do not have to reply on this.

      2) You don’t stay in a relationship to grow a relationship. You stay, for your own growth, for your own inner freedom, for your own realization. Doing things together or not does not mean together, or not. Togetherness doesn’t mean anything. It is just a word chosen to represent a seeming situation arising from meanings, concepts as you rightly put it. Realizing that you are still holding on to this concept is already one step forward. What you choose to do from now on will hence forth determine the outcome.

      3) Again, being apart means nothing but something unquestioned, something unrealized. It is a word chosen to represent a situation arising from meanings, concepts. Until you realize it, you will see it. Everything happening in your space can be your worst nightmare or for your highest good. What you choose to do from now on will hence forth determine the outcome.

      Take good care.
