Intimations of the Infinite
Nick: Hi, James. Today my girlfriend and I were together reading a bit of your blog about love. Everything you say makes perfect sense to me, and is pretty much what I have experienced or at least begun to. What you teach about the existence of the individual is also a truth that has become utterly clear and easy to me – beyond the incomplete and unskillful mantra that “You don’t exist.” The individual is happy to play as I watch.
With your help the intimations of the infinite and the already complete self-knowledge of awareness is clearer each day.
I am grateful both for your clear teachings and perhaps even more so for the example your life is to me. I am reminded of the phrase by Rumi, “Gamble everything for love,” – and what a blessing to find it’s all love and then live it.
This knowledge implies so much more than is imagined. I especially like this statement of yours and would like to put it at my website, if you don’t mind:
“Those that criticize Vedanta as a merely ‘intellectual’ path do not have a clue about Vedanta or a clue about love. If consciousness is all there is and love exists, then love is all there is and anything that reveals the nature of reality by stripping off ignorance about it is definitely a path of love.”
Also, I would like to include a picture of you to indicate you as one of my teachers, but if you would prefer I do not do so for any reason, then that is of course fine.
~ With love, Nick
