Yes. For that total unconditional letting GO must happen.

Hi
Very nice of you to explain to me beautifully.
I can't show your comments to my teacher, who is no more.
I am sure what he meant was - Just do not care what is happening in your mind. It will subside. The stillness and silence will descend on you.
Namaskar

Hi guys

I think it is very difficult for us to prove reality to someone...

Who is there to prove anything to a who?
Yes. You are right. Don't even try to prove it to a someone
Reality as the sages say is an impersonal experience.

The ultimate reality is non-duality/unconditional love and in order for you to perceive the ultimate reality, you need to be free from duality, meaning free from all fear, emotions, feelings and beliefs.

Actually the Ultimate Reality is duality because without duality there would be no reality because it is the contrast between two opposites where in the middle you will find what we call reality and through contrast we live. Likewise you cannot free yourself from all these negative emotions that you speak of although you can lessen them dramatically in some instances but you cannot rid yourself of negative emotion and only keep positive emotion because positive emotion is only positive due to the fact you have experienced negative emotion and this is what makes the two opposites so extreme for the person experiencing it so then if you were to rid yourself of all negative emotions you would inevitably rid yourself of all emotions because without one you don't get the other.

You are correct. There will be no subjective reality based on Thoughts, emotions, feelings, beliefs ect ect but the ultimate reality will still be there, so subjective reality is man made while the ultimate reality is not man made. Ultimate reality is just there in the present moment-the right here and now with no thoughts.

I love to take the opportunity to place something Meher Baba said,
when I think it pertains to the subject, enjoy.
God is love. And Love must love. And to love there must be a Beloved.
But since God is Existence infinite and eternal there is no one for Him to love but Himself.
And in order to love Himself, He must imagine Himself as the Beloved whom He
as the lover imagines He loves.

Beloved and lover implies separation.
And separation creates longing; and longing causes search.
And the wider and the more intense the search, the greater the separation and the more terrible the longing.
When longing is at its most intense, separation is complete, and the purpose of separation,
which was that love might experience itself as lover and Beloved,
is fulfilled; and union follows.

And when union is attained, the lover knows that he himself was all along the Beloved, whom he loved
and desired union with;

and that all the impossible situations that he overcame were obstacles which he himself had placed
in the path to himself.

To attain union is so impossibly difficult because it is impossible to become what you already are!
