Joe Miller would shout out in his vaudeville baritone voice, “You get more stink’in by drinking than think’in but To Feel Is For Real.” And David Less time after time would ask us, “What do you feel? Really Feel !”. I tried and tried to understand, to feel but something blocked me and I just couldn’t get there from here. Then David explained what is happening and how important unlearning is in solving it.
So how do I ‘Unlearn’ and here, Blessings upon Blessing Darvesha and the Buddhist path showed the way .
Darvesha goes on to explain the other two steps but I feel they naturally follow from a strong focus through the 1st and 2nd steps. For now I am just trying to really get those two steps and in doing so I am realizing the Truth of what Gangaji shouted out, “One must be constantly vigilant”.
When I was 25 how steadily I focused on the Light. Through the years how easily that Light has been blocked by my Reactions unmanaged. — Shams
