I highly recommend to do this short, simple but effective meditation. I’ve added it to my shortlist of favourite meditations.
I found that one of the difficult things to get comfortable with is the contrast between the viewpoint of the Absolute and the viewpoint of the Relative.
All kinds of drama can be going on in Life but how does that relate to the also present viewpoint of the Absolute? When I have a big problem I could say ‘There’s no Dennis so to whom is this happening?’.
This is dismissive of life and it doesn’t feel right, even though I know that it’s the truth.
The key is to accept that both viewpoints are valuable in their own way and they co-exist , even when they feel conflicting. The mind doesn’t like these paradoxes but it’s still possible to get comfortable with it.
Fred Davis always says that things in life count, but ultimately they don’t matter.
