We are trueing realtionship rather than ending or diminshing any real thing. We are working to use and direct anything which may be of use to the lost while attempting to end suffering. In my final analysis we are actually learning to allow things to be, as they are, without our interpretation. ( really, who are we to say how things should be)
We work to understand by diminshing our improper relationship to things.
Our bodies naturally breath in one gas, breath out another. If we do the opposite the physical ceases ( barring yogic process'). Our societies and insitutions these days perpetuate the teaching of how to die and stay dead (not physically speaking),that provokes our now wanting to be taught how to live.
So it is with using properly the realxation and the focused direction. The allowing and the releasing. The completly surrendered activity which is no activity at all, ending the search and starting the laugh, cause we see how perfect it all is.(w re to one of Awakenings previous posts: war is love play of a particular kind, just ask Arjuna)
When we stop for a moment, we start to allow that which keeps us moving, to become more manifest. If we really want to know relief we need to come to terms with and conquer our improper relationship with the missintrepreted vibration QX Niner, pain. Thats the target for our use of all the acoutrements of reality. Once we learn to accept the pain, the suffering goes away.
I like how all the teachings direct a plan , a procedure, an uncovering, each one more subtle till no plan or procedure applies because we have found the path everywhere.
When every thing dissapears, there is no real diminshment, cause we are only losing illusion, and rediscovering reality.
