Nice post RT. It's always a pleasure to dialog with someone who knows how to disagree with grace. Thanks for the beautiful example.runstrails wrote:Such a lovely post, WW. Pleasure to read. This is one lovely view of reality.
But of course, we don't know what reality's ultimate purpose is, even if there is one or if that's even the correct way to think about it in those terms.
My take (for what its worth) is that the realization that one is reality is a complete realization. It's the fulfillment of the ultimate desire. Beyond that there is not much to do. Using the dream analogy: No matter how fascinating, ultimately maya is a brief dream that you wake up from. This does not mean I don't enjoy maya for the most part---in fact, it much more fun now! In a way its funny because I'm a scientist and I explore mysteries of the brain everyday---but I have very little interest in exploring levels of consciousness or reality! But I remain fascinated by what unfolds.
