Thank you Ted Hale for understanding/recognizing the intensity. My children cannot read my poetry because it makes them experience the negative emotions described. It seems those who have experienced them, are better able to appreciate them for their validation aspects.

This is no-mind, when we have transcended thought and emotions, which prevent us from being Present in the Now. When we no longer look at the world through the eyes of the mind, the eyes of thought, we see Reality, which is not cut up into right and wrong.
