Nothing Ever Exists Entirely Alone



All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.

~Buddha

James's comment: This teaching of inteconnectivity always brings me back to my true home. It always adjusts me back into that place where there are no boundries, lines or places to be filled. No opposites, worries or distractions. No rough edges to be smoothed out and no stress.

It brings me a total and complete feeling of completion. There is just so much beauty and love in this teaching that I feel as though my heart might explode into a million shards of light and love. It is the original teaching that sunk deeply into my heart and led me to follow the Buddhist mystical path of the Bodhisattva.

---Peace to all beings---

Thank you James, for reminding us of this wonderful teaching.

Remebering this, I find it much easier to let go of the self-cherising mind and give way to peace.

gareth: I found that to be true too when I read this. I am re-reading it often.

The words of the Buddha bring comfort and peace. One day, we all will move from learning of interconnectivity to living- breathing effortlessly this notion. I understand your overjoy.

isaiah: yes, living in non-duality brings one great peace.
