After reading the Nisargadatta Maharaj quote from Helen's comment:
"Once you are in it, you will find that you love what you see, whatever may be its nature. This choiceless love is the touchstone of awareness."
It struck me that so no matter what the nature (so the scene could be terrible or wonderful; and in BOTH instances BECAUSE there are no others, AND ALL is INCLUDED, and All is IN ME) Self has no enmity. This is the Everpresent "Choiceless" Love. Only the Only.
And that scene is the watching of a movie sans emotionalism !!!
Could anything Ever have happened to ME, Awareness or to that which is INCLUDED in ME?
