“Affirmation” by Tarchin Hearn (excerpt from Green Dharma Treasury)

“Affirmation”

I have lived all my life with a terminal diagnosis, yet the naming of cancer is considered terminal whereas living is not. To surrender into the reality of living is to surrender into the reality of it always leading to death. Surrender into dying is therefore not necessarily different than surrendering into life. To utterly surrender. To willingly, lovingly, enthusiastically give myself into the flow of the mystery of living that is this moment and no other, this radical acceptance of observer coexisting with the process giving rise to observer/observed, is to refine in luminosity until everything is luminous. I am gripped with immense smiling just writing this. Surrender, not as a giving up or a resignation but surrender as ultimate life affirmation. May this become increasingly firm.

This journey of living and learning and sharing;
May it become clear for everyone.
May we soften our grasping.
May we embrace the mystery of this immediate universe manifesting all of us.
May we find refuge in heart felt reverence and functional love.

May our lives continue to weave together well for the sake of everyone.
May blessings abound.

with thanks

  1. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this surrender post of yours, Amira and just like the cancer disease that kills us why not live like that cause the body is already not there, we need to surrender simply everything that we are not and live a life of bliss the way our Lord wants.
