Last evening I was reading Nisargadattas ” I Am That” and came across one of many entries that I find to be so relevant these days. It was written that “In going beyond the limited, divided and opposing mind it becomes a question of love seeking expression and meeting with obstacles. The inclusive mind is love in action, battling against circumstances, initially frustrated ultimately victorious.”
The notion of individualism is a concept that we have come to collectively identify with especially in the west. I have come to realise that although useful in ways concepts are limited and fragmented notions of the whole and as Nisargadatta suggest pursuing a sense of self that is a product of the mind, as such, creates obstacles in my ability to be open, accepting and loving that is my nature.
