Love and Freedom

By meestereric / July 5, 2020 /

This morning I wrote to a truth-loving friend—who was intensely thinking-oriented—encouraging her to live a more “embodied” experience of non-duality: Develop, or rather uncover, the ability to listen beyond name and form, reveal the substance-less substance of energetic peace beyond word and thought, the senses and body and nature a pathway, to nothingness of silence,…
