No one wants their story to be over.
It seems that some come to the conclusion that a happy ending is not possible for them and, in anger and despair, seek to impose an unhappy ending on others.
Or perhaps it's for no reason at all.
When Awareness encounters an apparent person, Awareness acknowledges the person, accepting the person on his or her own terms.
The apparent person never encounters Awareness, because they can't see it. The apparent person can only see what seems to go on in memory, which is not the place to look for Awareness.
The apparent person and Awareness occur at different logical levels. Speaking of an aware or enlightened person is like talking about a Libertarian or Green pancake.
