I felt moved to repost this writing shared by good brother, Mc Vast Aire of Canibal Ox ... It touched on a great understanding that when realized inspired a freedom for myself.. The illusion of the "other" is a great distraction.. The division caused by attachment to belief, the separation caused by defining what is, coupled with a dedication to only one interpretation... The forest is a living entity, yet some only see a collection of solitary trees.. Yet if we choose to look below we come to understand the roots are intertwined in the earth, they thrive frim the same water source the same foundation. As humans when we place our awareness within, we see that we are all rooted in the same source... We discover that the "other" is rooted in ourself..
