The Heart of the Matter

The one conditioner is two. 
At first, it’s necessary to 
reflect, and all the world is staged 
to be my mirror. Taking time, 
I learn to see the other as 
myself. It isn’t easy though. 
We call this practice suffering. 
It lasts until another slowly 
gets it in this head—I am 
not two. There is a shortcut though— 
to love the other as my self. 
This is the heart of my intent.
For I am That, the absolute
unknowable subjective self
dividing self to know my self.
This world has named that knowing love.
And as below, it is above.
