    Give unto Ceasar what is Ceasars…
    No one is denying reality but some may be limiting reality. Life is all this.

      Hi, Robbin. Thanks for this.
      I deleted the comment you’re referring to here. I didn’t realize it had ever gone up–it won’t happen again with that particular reader.
      Always good to hear from you!

    Thanks, Fred. Such a cool story about the Atlantic! To me, these sorts of “coincidences” are just a clear manifestation of the tapestry of reality. Everything fits together. When I’m clear, I see these connections more easily, and even startling ones, like your example, manifest. I suspect if I were enlightened, everything would appear perfectly and naturally serendipitous. I don’t mean in the sense that it would all be serving my ego; all the “misfortune” would fit perfectly, too.

    And thanks for your thoughts on intellectual vs. experiential awakening. For me, the intellectual grasp of the nature of reality is immensely helpful, because I can rest my faith upon it. So when I’m feeling all caught up in egoic fears, I can still get great comfort and peace from reminding myself that my emotions are not in line with what I “know” to be true. I can even laugh at myself when caught up in severe angst, because then I think, wow, you are really out of touch with reality! And that is a huge comfort. And then I just say a prayer for God to grant me wisdom and clarity, and trust that it will be forthcoming. In fact, it already is here.

    All love,

    “And this is the Way of the Heart.” Wonderful article Fred. Yes, the direct path is the way of the intellect — but for me it seems I need to deepen the opening by falling in love with Awareness (Greg Goode) — and falling in love with all-that-is (Byron Katie). And I love being in love! Many thanks for your wisdom — and love.
