True Nature

From an everyday materialistic, mechanistic, popular, dualistic point of view, it seems so illogical — definitely not scientific. However, contempt prior to investigation is hardly scientific either. So eventually, you may come to a point where, irrational or not, you simply have to find out for yourself. If you do, you will discover that what most people think of as the “real world” is little more than a cruel, cynical, sadomasochistic fantasy. Set that completely aside, even for just a moment, and you will begin to discover, at the core, a radically different universe, one that hardly anyone would have ever imagined possible. It is not, however, based on blind optimism, or the triumph of positive over negative. In fact, it is so unexpected that you may find yourself suspended in a state of wonderment that it could actually be this way.

All you have to do is open your eyes and ears. All you have to do is open your mind, completely, and you will discover that your heart has always been open. It’s a mystery, the way that just about everybody imagines they don’t know. But here it is, beyond denial. Every leaf, every flower, every blade of grass, the bark of every tree, every droplet of water, every puffy white and blue-gray cloud, the warm blue of the sky and the brilliance of the sunshine, every gurgling brook in the shadows of the forest, every still mountain pool, every cool breeze off of the ocean, every scent of wild ginger, passion fruit, long leaf pine, or ylang-ylang, every insect, every lizard, in the song of every coqui and the cooing of every dove, in the squawking of every parrot, in the bright silver moonlight, in the sparkle of every distant star, in the earth and every living cell of your body, and the very air itself is shimmering with energy and saturated with the hidden warmth of kindness. Who would believe this? Maybe everybody already knew, but who could have possibly known?
