Great Waves of Love in Vedantaland
Dorothy: Dear Ram, I have had a huge shift in the last few days since you were here. I always understood “the world is in you” teaching intellectually, but since the satsang on Sunday I am now really experiencing it. It is quite weird actually – like everything now is a cinema screen which I am seeing, but now I am completely realizing that there really is no “out there,” just “me” watching it, which I also have total control of as I can choose what to see on the screen or take the mind away from it.
On the one hand, I find this rather lonely – being on my own and realizing that there is nothing out there. I’ve been feeling this for some time, actually. Although I lead rather a quiet life outside work, so much stuff seems futile now (TV, conversations that go nowhere, Western life in general). But seeing that there are no objects outside, just what I experience inside, is a bit isolating.At other times I get overwhelmed by great waves of love for everything in creation. It’s quite nuts, really, in Vedantaland!
I can’t really talk about this to anyone as they might lock me up!!! Please don’t email me back and say I am actually mad (whatever that means anyway). I am going to sit quietly with this for some time and watch. Anyhow, thought you would like to know how the fast track is progressing…
~ Love, Dorothy
Ram: Dear Dorothy, welcome to Vedantaland where everything is topsy-turvy, but the great waves of love can’t be all bad, can they?
