Turn the other cheek.

Turn the other cheek.
.by Tony O'Clery on Monday, May 23, 2011 at 7:56am. Falling out and arguments with family and friends isn't about 'making up' and mending fences or giving love. It is about getting over the attachment and surrendering. Jesus' turn the other cheek isn't about non violence per se but about the absolute futility in doing anything about it all...You may as well turn the other cheek ; The cheek of detachment and non karma...that is real love not sentiment...( The point of this is the per se...what is going to happen will happen anyway, mending fences or giving 'love', is the external action and human love is mostly attachment, things should be done for the Self's sake).
Like the yogi whose coat was stolen by a thief and he ran after him to give him his second garment so he wouldn't be attached...It takes a lot of attachment and pleasure to finally realise all is insanity and dukkha and that life in total is actually death.
