These last postings have also reminded me how it is in our nature to be detached and fully engaged.
As pure awareness, we are by nature detached. We allow anything to come and go as guests, whether we can describe it as external or internal situations (to our human self).
And as human beings, we are by nature fully and dynamically engaged in life and in the larger social and ecological systems.
Leaving out one or the other, we live only a half life.
Of course, it is a process to awaken as pure awareness and to integrate this into our human life, and it is a process to mature as a human being including learning skills etc. But this does not prevent us from being fully engaged as we are, as well as we can. Working it out as we go. This is part of the process. It is human life.
