inherently existing

according to Buddhist Philosophy, happiness is the result of an enlightened mind, whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.

The Dalai Lama says this is very important. A distorted mind, in contrast to an enlightened mind, is one that is not in tune with reality.

so i guess it would follow that the depressed or dejected individual is not enlightened

Dalai goes on to say that a wise consciousness grounded in reality, understands that living beings and other phenomena- minds, bodies, buildings and so forth- do not inherently exist. This is the wisdom of emptiness.

so if you are depressed that nothing exists you may be wise but not enlightened.

his quote for today, from my calendar of insights, says
as we contemplate the way in which we project our judgments - whether positive or negative - upon people as well as objects and situations, we can begin to appreciate that more reasoned emotions and thoughts are more grounded in reality.

So from this I conclude, we cannot blame people and objects that do not inherently exist for how we experience our emotional nature.

However if we do not exist and do not have actual feelings for other non existent people and objects, the true nature of love must be examined for its ability to enable mutual awareness and understanding.

love transcends physical existence whether real or imagined

it places awareness in a state that is not bound by the standard laws of physical reality

so it is a gateway to the higher reality, the one that is inherently existing

this state of love is joined to universal awareness and feeling that is not attached to any object or person

In this state the individual experience of being is exalted beyond the boundaries of discrete and separated particles and becomes universally inclusive waves that flow through all experience of awareness

In this state there is only the awareness of universal truth - that form is the representation of this reality - not the reality itself
