Our psychological state allows us to see only what we want/need/feel to see at a particular time. What are the first three words that you see?
success, time and honesty
Friends; power and freedom
The most amazing feeling, is finding love within. I was that person who lost a love… It stripped me down to nothing, all I saw was darkness, until I started building myself. Piece by piece I picked up the broken glass and glued it back together.
What I know now, is the love that felt so real then, was not right for me. I had to undergo the heartbreak to be a stronger person. The person I am today has allowed me to identify real love…
Real love is loving yourself, valuing yourself and surviving independently as well as appreciating everyone in my life. A good life experience is a memory and a difficult life experience is a lesson.
Become the clear space at the center of the bead and let the world’s appearance spin on the axis of your bright emptiness.
“When the shoe fits the foot is forgotten.” Chuang Tzu – As mind matures it becomes simple. Simplicity is the sign of spiritual maturing. A mind engaged in ceaseless complexities of personal dramas is ceaselessly preoccupied … it’s chaotic complexity keeps mind always already occupied and there is no room for discovery of life’s deep and true nature of wisdom bliss. There is no room to be informed by wisdom’s ease.
Where mind has matured through the spiritual process even life’s complexities are met with a simplicity, grace, ease that unravel the Gordian Knot of ego’s imagined densities of difficulty. At the deepest level this Bright Virtue of mind outshines the presumed, but illusory, problems of death and suffering. Simplicity has some excellent companions on the path as well. Their names are humility, gentleness, silence.
As you mature spiritually, life will test your maturity by throwing seductive complexities in your path. This continues right up until simplicity overwhelms delusion with bright spaciousness. Think of Buddha on the final night of his spiritual journey: Mara threw every type of distraction and seduction at him… power, desire, fear, aggression, violence. Think of Satan’s attempted seduction of Jesus in the desert … just the same. Meet complexity with simplicity, wisdom, ease, gentleness, love, silence, humility and it will evaporate like morning mist in dawn’s warmth. Become the clear space at the center of the bead and let the world’s appearance spin on the axis of your bright emptiness.
- Traktung Khepa
Agree…. Simple is best
“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
