This is a very pessimist view, I know, I know.

This to me sounds like a fear of surrender.

The more you surrender the more things will balance out for you.IMO

I don't believe you will loose your emotions in emptiness.

My experience is that when surrendered to emptiness, true Divinity can operate.

You will start learning which emotions are built from past experiences and future fears and delusions.

This will then teach you how to Love in innocence and purity in the present.

Of course this all opinion based on my experiences.

Hi, to me this is a great sign and you are only half way there. You have separated or created a space between emptiness and objects, like the a mirror separating itself from it's reflections.

You are half way there, you have realized the emptiness but there is more. you have to realize the everything and that it's one. You have to merge back again and then you will discover absolute love. Before you can do this you have to go through, what others are saying too: the dark night of the soul and also integrate your ego. It's a stage so carry on what your doing.

Hang in there it will pass too.

Ps this is how i been taught and not gone through it, so good luck.

Anthony, I agree with you on the oneness aspect. I felt isolated all my life, but now I am seeing myself as integrated, as included in the ONE. My true feelings are difficult to describe in words, but they are embodied in appreciation. I use my physical sensors to perceive the feelings of others. My perception is most others feel a deep lack, which I have a strong compassion for. Currently, I am working on how to fill that lack for them. So far, I have come up with a dozen ways it doesnít work.

An example might be that a subfunction in a greater resilient and self-healing system is failing. The greater system can diagnose and reconfigure the subsystem automatically, and then the subfunction begins working properly again. I am part of the failing subfunction receiving the reconfiguration. As I come back online, I participate in the diagnosis and reconfiguration of the rest of the subfunction.

I am confused by the big fuss over non duality vs duality, as I only see one system, within which we all function. As far as the dark night of the soul, I donít know. If it gets any darker than what I have already been through, Iím not sure I can do it.

I appreciate your though provoking comments.
