TRUTH OF BEING LIFE
OVERIDING ALL THAT IS UNREAL
UNLESS A MINDING MIND SAYS OTHERWISE!
your aliveness need not go down.
The enlivening force itself is rapture. It brightens our vitality, our gratitude, and our love. We begin to develop rapture by rejoicing in our own goodness.
Contemplating the goodness within ourselves is a classical meditation, done to bring light, joy and rapture to the mind. Yet this classical reflection is not a way of increasing conceit. It is rather a commitment to our own happiness, seeing our happiness as the basis for intimacy with all of life. It fills us with joy and love for ourselves and a great deal of self-respect.
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter-
If your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.
~Chinese poem (unknown)
