Meeting Life As It Is…

I used to think the goal was to “awaken”
from life as it is – to be “enlightened.”
And everything would be “different:”
easier, more fluid; things would just fall into place;
that “I” would be “different” – changed somehow.

 

But it seems the real “awakening”
is about keeping the heart open to
life as it is – not dismissing it or others
as an “appearance” only;
detached from life…

 

But seeing beyond the “appearance” to the Real;
the Formless in form;
Seeing the Real Being behind the eyes…

 

Showing up for life and doing what is needed
with mindfulness, kindness and compassion.

 

Allowing ourselves to be touched by others
and their life circumstances means being
vulnerable and open –
not having the “answers”,
or hiding behind the comforting certainties of
a “belief system.”

 

It means forgiving the frailties of others
and accepting one’s own…
Not dismissing others as part of an illusion, part
of a dream; not buying into the dream of separation
by denying life…

 

“Awakening”, it seems  is about meeting life as it is,
living amidst the disturbances of life,
discovering and acknowledging the Real Being in
oneself and others;
surrendering to the immensity of “The Mystery”
living ItSelf in the every-day-ness of life…
