Joy is here, as is loneliness, confusion, heartbreak, and bliss

At times, you may notice a tinge of sadness coloring your experience. A certain longing for aliveness, to know the miracle you sense is unfolding and available here.

This is not the mind’s version of sadness where you feel something is missing. Instead, it is a reflection of how open it truly is here, how it will never really turn out the way you thought, and how much is overflowing into and out of your heart.

Inside your body are the sun and the moon, the stars, the oceans, and the entirety of the seen and unseen places. Joy is here, as is loneliness, confusion, heartbreak, and bliss – each of these unique portals through which to enter into intimacy with all things.

No longer having a bias for union over separation – or for oneness over multiplicity – you are free to fully engage here and to no longer postpone the offering that you are. Committed to whatever appears, ready to hold and transmute it for the benefit of self and other.

From inside the center, it is no longer possible to weave the narrative that your vulnerability is an obstacle on the path. Rather, it is the path itself, and of the nature of untainted, translucent awareness. While this awareness may appear empty and of the void, it is filled with outrageous qualities of luminosity, warmth, and compassion.

This is what you are.
