Rambling

….I think one has to go beyond the mere meaning of the words and ‘feel’ the sense underlying them. I would say that complete intimacy happens when the sense of otherness has disappeared. Conversely, when the sense of otherness has gone there is intimacy. So when one is in this state of mind the question of approachability does not arise as there is no ‘other’ to approach.

Unapproachability does not contribute to ‘oneness’ rather ‘oneness’ does not admit of ‘another’ hence it is unapproachable.
Take for example  the act of ‘helping’ someone, in this state of mind (of no otherness)’you’ are not helping ‘another’ you are only helping
yourself. So the ‘help’ is completely free from any form of exploitation, it is pure and spontaneous. Completely untainted by the sense ‘I am
helping’, the professional do-gooder is so full of himself, so enamoured with his good deed that it is quite nauseous. So rather than being an
unfavourable trait it may be a very desirable one!
