The more we find ourselves as the groundless ground during confusion and triggered habitual patterns, the more we can recognize the groundless ground in others when confusion is expressed.
We know, from our own experience, that behind the confusion – behind the beliefs in thoughts and the drama and suffering created from that – there is clarity. And that this clarity is effortlessly expressed as kindness and intelligence when it is not covered up.
And we know that this is the case for others as well.
This takes a good deal of the sting out of it, when we see and relate to people – including ourselves – temporarily caught up in confusion.
