“He who listens to truth is not less than he who utters truth.”
Right here and right now… you are listening and I am speaking. Such is the nature of relative reality with its two polarities… subjective and objective. If however we are not wakeful and therefore mired in the illusion of separation… I am perceived as separate and different from you. Then follows illusory definition and judgement… lesser… greater… right and wrong… etc. as part of the egoic construct.
Yet… if we are wakeful… illusory separation yields to truthful unification… and both relative polarities are perceived as the same consciousness. Illusory egoic definition and judgement likewise disappears. In this understanding… and correspondent holistic experience… there is only one.
Kahil Gibran is absolutely truthful in his statement. The one who listens and the one who speaks are the same consciousness. Such is the experience of unified relative reality. Subject and object are the same consciousness.
Right here and right now… and for the rest of this week… and for forever… let us endeavor to remain wakeful of this truth. You and I… all objects and subjects… are the same consciousness. In essential consciousness we are all equal because there is only one. Let us live in this holistic awareness and be free.
