“But why,” we ask, “does awareness allow itself to be veiled?”
The mind wants to know, and can get lost in creating scenarios, such as “awareness wanted an other to experience love.”
It’s a nice story. If this satisfies something for you, that’s fine, too. It soothed something in me for decades.
“Why” questions have no answers, and engaging with these questions re-activates our already overactive minds. Allow the very thought of “why” to be the reminder to relax. Be happy feeling the “why”–no need to reject it. Allow the wind to sail it away.
