Spontaneously Self Illuminated Reality

Sitting again in my room at home, it's funny to notice that everything changes and nothing changes. I go and do so many things yet the basic fact of the here and now just blazes unchanged. Regardless of how much or little effort is made, success' or apparent failures incurred, it all joyously amounts to what it has always been - ungraspable, spontaneously self illuminated reality, profoundly satisfied exactly as it is.

Short Moments of Openness

Leaving ourselves without assumptions, belief systems or agenda we are just as we are - open and free of any type of victim hood whatsoever. Circumstances, complaints, problems are seen to be so only if they are presumed to be so. For short moments many times, what a gift it is to recognise this as our own experience!

Although habitual viewpoints continue to arise, in relaxed openness they are not accepted or rejected and so there is effortless non-distraction in their immediacy. As no one way of seeing things is held to or avoided, multiple ways of seeing the same situation are all free to arise, giving a balanced view and deeper sensitivity and skill in any given situation.

Effortless in all Circumstances

Being effortless in all circumstances, we find a tremendous power within ourselves. Short moments, many times.

Like the Summit of a Mountain

Stability is naturally present when we take a moment to relax the need to arrange and control our experiences.

When we relax for that moment, we are spacious and carefree - relieved of the endless task of trying to be a certain way. In addition to this relief, we find that we have a higher sense of perspective, a balanced view, which is characterised by a fluidity of skillful conduct. It's is like being on the top of a mountain where you can see the landscape of any circumstance clearly and can orientate through it in a way that is of most benefit to all involved.

Reality of Joy

Earlier in my life I had an undefinable reluctance to relax enough to allow joy within myself. There was always something more important to busy myself with! With a tone of somehow needing to keep things under wraps, keep myself in order, make sure I'm "on track", make sure I'm satisfied, make sure of something but not really knowing what!
In short moments of relaxing the need to follow this fuzz of habitual effort, reality shows us it's joy - a joy that is all encompassing and dependant on nothing.

Peaceful Nature is Primary

"Each moment of peace tells the story of our origin"

Natural Perfection

When everything is allowed to be as it is, there is the taste of natural perfection.

Since natural perfection characterises all experiences, its repeated recognition in short moments releases us from belief in the descriptional differences between this experience and that experience. It is seen that natural perfection is common to all of them, and the suffering of feeling like we need to gain control over what will happen softens out, leaving open hearted clarity.
