Grace becomes us in the absence of the “me”

Life is not about creating problems and then spending all our energy trying to solve them. Or we set up spiritual shop and try to solve other people’s problems, perhaps inadvertently giving them clout. Can you imagine? We do not need to imagine; this is what we do: live almost exclusively in our imagination by chasing desires, recognition, or some ideal of love and personal fulfillment. Whether that is in the name of spirituality or not. Reality is too simple, empty and indifferent for such a problematic mind. This is why love is so rare because it is only in the absence of the “me” that Grace becomes us.
