The Otherness of the Other and the Pain

If we cannot accept the otherness of our counterpart, then we are still too caught up in the pain. We are then so close to our pain threshold that the otherness of our counterpart alone – this little bit more pain of separateness that we experience just by his naked existence – makes our barrel overflow. The consequence is, in the best case, avoidance. In the worse case, expulsion. In the worst case, killing. All this because we can no longer bear this little bit more of pain. All this because our barrel is so overflowing with pain that it has no more room for unity and security.

If we are no longer so much in pain, if we are more secure in unity, then we can leave our counterpart as he is. It does not hurt us. We are connected to him, no matter how different it may seem. This change cannot be achieved through insight. It can only be achieved by turning more to our spiritual sense, by giving greater weight to its voice. If we do this, the world will change by itself.

Pain must never be allowed to guide us. Our actions grow out of the fearless knowledge of our security in the meaning, of our soulfulness and of the eternal unity of everything. We always act in love for everything and everyone. There is no inner separation. Pain alone must never guide us.
