Resting in your true nature

Looking up into the sunrise on a timeless morning, we know that at any moment our heart may break, that we may fall in love in the most excruciating way, or that we may be met with deep waves of the most raw, tender sadness, loneliness, grief, and sorrow. No longer willing to abandon these ancient companions, we can only invite and meet them in the center, and allow them to liberate on their own, in the warmth of our loving kindness.

In this one eternal here and now moment, it is revealed that groundlessness is our home and the unknown is our only true refuge. We see that it is through resting in our true nature that we can fully love this world—this special place we have somehow taken birth within—and remain in awe at the preciousness of what is truly happening here.

Here, only one prayer remains and that is to no longer turn from this unguarded heart, from the wild intelligence of this body, and from the most sacred vulnerability that colors our immediate experience at all times... for these are none other than the radiant pathways home, as they pour forth from the golden blue transmission of the beloved, and the emissaries she is sending at all times.
