The Impossibility of Loving "Another"

Recommended Posts

How does one love another as "another"?


How does one love another as "himself"? 


Whats the difference?


Why not just chill and talk to this person like normal lol. Simplicity always wins imo.

"Mediocrity is gone. Mind is clear of limitation. I seek no state of enlightenment. Neither do I remain where no enlightenment exists. Since I linger in neither condition, eyes cannot see me. If hundreds of birds strew my path with flowers, such praise would be meaningless."

If all one knows is himself it's impossible to love another as "another". 


This has such profound implications for relationship, especially with a person who takes herself/himself to be a separate-self. 

If one knows oneself and yet finds it impossible to love another or a person who takes themself to be separate, one doesn’t actually yet know oneself.
