At first I was wondering if I'm placid, amiable and cheering others on because of all my 'training' / turd polishing in all these spiritual cul de sacs I've ventured down or if it is requiring effort by me to be in that state? If so I'm probably further off HA than I thought? But a deeper question arises, does it even matter how I'm being since it's just dreamstate? Who was I to look down on those that it seemed to me had lost their moral compass? Does it matter how you behave if everything is false anyway?

Well... it it's all false then you can behave any way you want, correct? So, how do you want to behave? It doesn't matter to me, but it might matter to what appears to be you. But, do you have any say in how you behave? Really. How do you make decisions as to how to behave? Do you really make any decisions?

Love ya, Jed.

P.S. One other question, would you like a happy, rewarding, pleasant dream or a crappy one?

Correct if it's just a dream behave how you want it would now seem. I've never felt I had a choice of how to behave before. I've always been a conformist. Keep your head down and stay out of trouble type. I suspect I'd have trouble playing a bad guy or being mean or dishonest. I will have to sit with that question a bit longer. On the second question I want a happy, rewarding, pleasant dream. My memories / hallucinations of my current dream up to now have been less than desirable and often crappy. So did I weave this crappy dream or did Maya weave it? Who is writing the script to this whole experience and appearance?

You have written the script, are the actors, the screen, and projector, all of it. BUT, before you berate yourself for a crappy dream, I am not talking about the you that you think you are. I am talking about a much different you, the you that all this is arising in. That you has no concern for good or back, it only provided everything needed for the dream. How it unravels is the Mystery.

Love ya, Jed.

Thanks for still being here to assist Jed.
I'm having this weird experience of seeing myself react to people and situations while simultaneously seeing the irrelevance of the reaction. My inclination is to remove myself from the uncomfortableness of the energy I feel so acutely coming from the angsty teenagers around me.  At the same time I think that any resistance indicates an identification with some mental pretext which goes against the flow of energy happening now.
Most of the significant advances (breaking down of blockages, expandings into freedom) have come from going into that which I resist. Fear, pain, the void.
My question is, is this just another byway? Can I keep challenging my resistance adnauseum, forever?
Love and appreciation to all the contributors, what else is there but this sh*t?

So, to be more succinct, I don't create or participate in drama, but I don't like being around it either.
That seems to indicate a level of personal investment.
An unwilling participant in the drama is still a participant in the drama.
How do you go with being around drama Jed?

Dear M:

The well of this human dream is pretty deep. Do it until you don't have to.

Regarding drama. You know when it's coming and you know who is bringing it with them. You don't listen to yourself though because of two things. First off, you can point to it and say ''I'm better than that''. Secondly, when you are involved in the drama it give you a rush, a stimulus that makes you feel alive.

Jut watch and learn. What else is there to do.

Love ya, Jed.
