The Karma of Guilt and Pride

ALL THINGS arise from emptiness, meaning NO THING has it’s own inherent nature. You do not exist without everything else that has ever materialized in shape, action, word, thought and feeling up until this point. AND every now and again, with practice, we can choose to wake up from our sleepwalking and see the truth of both the separate and not-separate existence, and rest as the observer, as consciousness, in that duality which is also non-duality. Of course the only reason we are able to do that is because of everything else that has ever materialized in shape, action, word, thought and feeling up until this point. Consciouses arises from the void of emptiness just the same as all things. It does not dwell somewhere beyond it. We arise together and with everything else. Compassion for oneself and others can not occur with out seeing the co-arising existence we and all things share. So remember this in your suffering and in your joy: If you are feeling guilty for your causations, effects and states of being affected – it’s not just your doing. And if you are feeling prideful for your causations, effects and states of being affected – it’s not just your doing. You can relax now.
