WHERE SPIRITUALITY MEETS OUR VULNERABLE HUMANITY… 

Jeff Foster, with humour and compassion, speaks simply and directly about non-duality, emotional healing and awakening… and finding the sacred in the ordinary. 

“Thoughts and feelings are not mistakes, and they are not asking to be HEALED. They are asking to be HELD, here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…”

FALLING IN LOVE

It is a falling, for sure. A falling-away of history. A falling-away of thought. A falling-away of time itself, and the pain of separation.

Yet, in truth, the “me” cannot fall in love. It is the “me”, the thought-constructed identity, that falls away, and what remains is Love Itself, a love with no name, a universal and unconditioned love, a love that was always present yet overlooked by the seeker in pursuit of something called “love”.

The “me” does not understand love, its non-possessive nature, the way it sets the other free, free to honour their beautiful aloneness. The “me” wants to possess the other, make them “mine”. It wants a future, it wants certainty and promises, it wants to know. It puts conditions on love. And it fears the loss of the other, fears the end of the connection, fears change, fears fear itself. Where there is fear and control, manipulation and possession, you know the ego has taken over.

“They bring me love, and they can take it away” – the biggest illusion of all, responsible for so much drama, so much conflict and misery, within and without. Nobody brings love, and nobody can take love away. Nobody can complete you, and nobody can make you incomplete. So easy to forget.

Love liberates, ego says “mine”. Is this wrong? No. It is also part of life, and to be honoured deeply. But for those who are interested in truth, for those who no longer want to shut their eyes to reality, this deeper exploration of love holds the key.

In one sense, we are all radically alone. I cannot experience your experience. You cannot experience my experience. Nobody can live for me, or die for me, experience pain for me, or joy for me. Nobody can cry for me, or laugh for me, or dance for me. I go through all of these intimately personal experiences in radical aloneness.

But to stay with that aloneness, to face it, to sink into the great mystery of it, that is the key! For right at the heart of our aloneness we discover our true connection (with ourselves, with each other, with the Universe) and that is where we discover true compassion. We realise that on the deepest level we are all in exactly the same existential situation.

And so, even though we are all alone, we are not alone, alone. We are alone, together, alone. Alone with everything and everyone. Alone with thoughts, sensations, feelings, sounds, smells, as they arise and dissolve in the exquisite vastness. Alone with our excitement and our broken hearts. We are alone with all of life, intimate with it, inseparable from it, joined to it forever. A wonderful marriage with the Cosmos...

Aloneness is not loneliness:
It is the source of all joy.
