Only when I see everything inside me can I truly "love my neighbor as my self," even my "enemy." The quality of intimate friendship pervades the cosmos, because nothing is other than my self. How could I wish harm on another, compete with another, hoard wealth against another, envy another, bear arms against another? There is no other. This is the ancient relationship between the mystical and the ethical that Jesus lived. This is the Resurrection, the new life that Jesus embodied, the death of ego and rising of Christ-Consciousness. I drown like a bee in the rose of my own vast golden Presence. I include everyone, the planets and the stars. Also, I love rabbits.
