No, your ego's telling you that you've figured out god and love already and what I'm saying couldn't possibly be true.
Experience and perception are two entirely different things. Perception being the interpretation of experience. For example: You can have (almost) the same experience and have a radically different perception of it. I let go of perceptions to gain a larger perspective.
Oh, and your ego is telling you god isn't love.
You are calling it a concept which is interesting, because it's your concept, a concept of the ego, your ego. You don't have to put the condition on love to give you peace, I know that from experience. That is your ego speaking.
Of course I don't have to put the condition on love to give me peace. I never said that. Love gives me peace. I don't require Love to give me peace, Love gives me peace anyway. Ice cream tastes delicious. I don't require ice cream to taste delicious, ice cream tastes delicious anyway. This is the conceptual understanding I'm trying to communicate to you, the difference between a description and a condition.
Love giving me peace is not a concept, nor did I ever call it a concept. You misinterpret what I'm saying again, please read more carefully and not let your ego jump to judgments.
Speaking of concepts, so long as peace and love are concepts to you, they're separate things. Beyond the conceptual and into a much larger Reality, peace and Love are One in the same.
Why call green blue and blue green? it's the same reason as I have already said. They both occupy a space on the spiritual spectrum but they are not the same. Good you are saying they are distinct, I don't know what your ego is talking about now?
Here, I'll play your silly game. Peace and Love are separate? Who's putting conditions on Love now?
Oh, and peace is unconditional. Conditions create disharmony, they lead one to discriminate and separate, which inevitably leads to conflict, the absence of peace.
No. You need to still your ego. See?
It is still, otherwise I doubt I'd be able to stand communicating with you. It's a little odd being told that saying "Love gives me peace" is my ego talking.
You know what you're telling me is a double-edged sword, right? You tell me it's just my perception, but how do you know it's not just your perception? I could easily accuse you of the same things you accuse me of, in fact, I think most of the advice you're giving is meant for you, not me.
