Resting in the majesty that you are

From the perspective of confused mind, groundlessness is terrifying; honor the call to seek safe passage and something to hold onto. It is kind to care for yourself in the best ways you know.

From the perspective of the mandala of the beloved, however, groundlessness and enlightenment are one, co-arising as the translucent activity of open awareness. You are none other than space consciousness itself, the luminous capacity in which all form arises, dances for a short time, and dissolves.

It is through loving attunement to your immediate experience and the unconditional commitment to radical self-compassion that a holding space will appear for you to rest in the majesty of what you are.

Though the movement of the beloved one is infinitely sweet and holding, in its essence it is everything. It is devastating as it is the end of one world, and glorious as it is the beginning of another.
