One Love Nuggets:
Your questions answered on all things love, life and relationships.
“Here is a question for you: How do we transcend the veil that floats between our self and relationship, inhibiting intimacy with ourselves and each other? I swear I can see it sometimes.”
You can see it! Sounds like you are describing the Hindu idea of “Avidya Maya”. “Maya is the symbol of the cosmic illusion, whose veil does not allow mortals to perceive God. Maya has two aspects: Avidya Maya, the ignorance that estranges mortals from God, and Vidya Maya, the liberating knowledge that gradually leads mortals to the ineffable and intoxicating communion with God.”
To transcend, to go beyond perceived limits, means piercing this veil will require your willingness to see yourself, others and intimacy in new way. Don’t believe the hype of “you and me”. Transcend the belief that we are separate, and embrace the possibility, that we are all part of the same Kosmic being, all wired for communion in God. Maybe God meeting God is what relationship is all about. Perhaps that is what TRUE intimacy is, communion in God. Let’s not trip over the “G” word. By all names spoken and unspoken, let’s ecumenically agree that there is a divine life force in the Universe.
So, how do you transcend the veil?
The only “inhibitors” are resistance and withholding. The nature of veils is that they are thin, flimsy, transparent, easily moved, and hardly substantial obstacles. It is easier than you think. Just reach OUT and remember, as you do, that you are reaching IN-to your deepest self and to the vast mystery all at once. It is what you are wired for. Unity loves itself and longs to be intimate with you.
Transcend the veil. Go beyond it and tell me what you find. And if you need an ally along the journey, you know where to find me. Thank you for your question.
