Hello Brian,

I liked this post very much, thank you. :)

Blogger Brian- there is no such thing as "oneness". There is no such thing as "many-ness".

What there is is "is-ness". Reality. Like it or not Reality. All egos hate Reality, because it means we are all FUCKED no matter how we conceive of ourselves.

You can only enjoy life if you have the capacity to enjoy life. That capacity, if you have it, will inevitably and inexorably diminish.

Then you are left with "is-ness", or, in a more colloquial term: Reality. It is unbearable and intolerable, but you are going to bear it and tolerate it despite yourself.

Good REAListic remarks by Willie R.

However: "but you are going to bear it and tolerate it despite yourself."

--Even that is a capacity you may or may not have, and it too is likely to diminish like the erosion of a cliff, but there is a certainty... one way or another we will get to the end of our lives.
