Love makes the world go around. Love, love, love is what it is all about. Love yourself, love others. Just love, and more love. We are trying to make love our default state. It is helped by wisdom, the wisdom that recognizes appearances to be false. This is the gap between what is real and what appears. Mind the gap, the gap between appearance and reality. When we begin to see that all appearances are false, that they are only fabrications created by the conceptual mind, then we don’t take them so seriously. We recognize them as only as words, as concepts, as language. We don’t take ourself so seriously. It becomes harder to get upset. Harder to get upset about ourself and about others. Then everything is balanced, and starts to flow. Flow gently, like a stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, gently down the stream; merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream (unreal appearances).
