Humility of Arrogance; Arrogance of Humility

Humility and arrogance come and go within awareness. Neither of them, or any other experience can define the magic and majesty of this being that you are. Look into them and see that they have no independent self-substance, but are dependent upon each-other. Look deeper and see that they appear to be in your field of experience, but upon closer observation are not really there as things that have lasting definition or lasting importance to themselves. They are concepts. When they are seen as concepts of a momentary perception that have no independent power to stand up as any real and lasting definition of your self, then they can be released as quickly as they appear. There really is no humility or arrogance beyond a momentary perception of an energetic stance that can possibly define the magic and majesty of this mystery that you are. In arrogance there is humility, in humility there is arrogance. This way they are seen as ephemeral waves that hold no power over the mysterious beauty that is this presence of awareness. Humility and arrogance are merely aspects of all that appears and disappears within the beautiful being that you truly are.

I really love the way you aren't down on humanity and give it the label of majesty.

Hiya No One ;-)

Majestic is this glorious beyondness being all.

Even when my cookie gets soggy and crumbles, it does so with splendor and majesty.

How utterly majestic is my forlorness that sighs from the percieving of rejection of this aged body. It seems to have been a dream when there appeared to be youthful, masculine vigor, and ready responses of feminine lust.

Finding oneself suddenly cast away into a drier flesh that is increasingly overlooked by the countless daily legions of passionate, feminine beauty really sucks majestically.

Oh what to do, what to do...?

(and I'm only in my 40's. Jeesh!)
