I have a deep intolerance - and it is only one intolerance that I carry: for intolerance itself. That’s funny, right? It is, and I readily own and accept that even in intolerance I have an intolerance for myself!
But I’ll explain this.
My intolerance is not for a human, or a group of humans. It is for the act of intolerance itself. The energy of stupidity that we can operate from in this illusory form is absurdity at its finest, and we can all point outward towards examples in others to agree.
YET - I haven’t met the Enlightened One who will point that finger right where it belongs: within. And so we carry on, telling the world it should do this and shouldn’t do that, yet not a single recognition that what we are telling the world to eradicate lies within our very own temple…that to stop seeing it in the world, we must actually see that change within.
Isn’t that the definition of insanity, my friend? And YOU are as guilty as I or any other. Yes, even the Dalai Lama.
Because Enlightenment is the full realization that nothing in the world needs to change. And truly, not a single thing in the world does need to change for me to be supremely happy; to be supremely Me. In this, I find my own intolerance of intolerance delightfully annoying.
I cannot fix a thing in the world, and the more of the Universe I recall within, the more I realize on visceral levels that I am but an amateur in this human form. True, my knowledge is Supreme and far more vast than any I’ve yet encountered - but that may be more to my demise than to my aid.
Because ignorance in many ways is more blissful than TRUE Knowledge. Because TRUE Knowledge advises us that nothing will change, and if we wish to be more and more blissful it is only Us who needs to seek to change. That’s pretty fucked, isn’t it?
So while the spiritual pricks - of which you likely are one - will tell me how enlightened they/You are, and how much I am in my ego and know nothing of Truth, I have the Truth and am left to sit and lovingly embrace you in your full ignorance. You will tell me how I need to change, and the meat-eaters need to change, and the peace hippies need to change…and how you have all the answers.
And here I Am - Truth incarnate. Here to listen to you spout off about your self-proclaimed enlightenment and so-called AWAKE state. As if either can really exist! You are the joke!
Do you know what Enlightenment really is? Do you, truly? Tell me, enlighten me, let me know how awesome you are and how you are the only one. I will listen. I will hear how you personally held space for someone who thought they knew something but it was you and your fear/anger-based reality that actually knew better. Yes, how could I have not seen You, the One!
If I had one message to the world it would be that you are just a human seeking externally for validation that you will never find, because you seek to do no work on yourself because you have already realized your awesomeness; and I will watch as you ridicule every person who cannot see you.
Yet, cannot this also apply to me? Cannot you also point this very message to me and try to hold me accountable for my words? Absolutely!
There are many ways to experience the God Self, the very seed of All within our own inner world. The most direct is to be able to look around and see what is being reflected to us in our daily lives; in our moment-by-moment experiences. If we love what we see at each moment, we likely have found a deep inner peace. If we are intolerant at even one thing, let alone many things, then it is we who need to look within. Because each moment can look exactly the same but totally different depending upon our internal lenses.
So when I address this, I see that I am not even intolerant. Intolerance suggests that I cannot live with what I see or experience. And I can, with the most mundane and hateful of energies. Why? Because my Self Love is supreme. Which means my Love for all is equally Supreme. And therefore I AM All. Including the Energies of intolerance, which only serve to ignite my Fire further for Self Knowing…which is actually Self Unknowing. But you would know this if you really were The One, wouldn’t you?
