As one who loves God, Tony, that video was hard to watch, but I get it.

In Fingers Pointing Toward the Sacred, Frederick Franck reports a conversation with a Zen master. He says the master told him when he reaches enlightenment, God will disappear for him. Franck said he preferred to think he will disappear and only God will remain. The master said, "Yes! That's it! It's the same thing." (paraphrasing)

For me it is the latter. I started out with a dualistic relationship with God. As I grow in awareness, I am disappearing and only God remains, not God "out there" but God here...always here. :D

Dear Charles,

When I first experienced non-duality consciously, nothing was Sacred. I thought Sacredness was only a belief. I have learned the lesson very painfully. I love God with all my heart, mind, strength and being.

I am glade the Sacredness you learned from your upbringing still remains with you.

Tony
