PRIMORDIAL MEMORY’S FULL FREEDOM
What seemed distorted is seen as true.
What seemed lacking is seen as abundant.
What seemed worn out is seen as fresh and new.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 22
that tells us we are mistaken
when we trust our intuition.
It is the deception of commerce
which suggests that we should buy something
that we apparently didn’t know we lacked.
Nothing new is needed
to make our lives complete
The truth, we are told, lies somewhere outside of us.
Perfection is always out of reach, something for which we must forever strive.
Pretend for a moment that this is not true.
Pretend that who you are and what you have right now is enough.
Pretend that you are content, creative, and competent.
This perspective is not encouraged by conditioned mind.
Conditioned mind depends on always having something to criticize and fix;
something to keep pushing us to improve.
But true “improvement” comes
from the joy and freedom
of the perfect present moment.
