Tasting Our True Essence

Inspiration:

“An effortless compassion can arise for all beings who have not realized their true nature. So limitless is it that if tears could express it, you would cry without end. Not only compassion, but tremendous skillful means can be born when you realize the nature of mind. Also you are naturally liberated from all suffering and fear, such as the fear of birth, death and the intermediate state. Then if you were to speak of the joy and bliss that arise from this realization, it is said by the buddhas that if you were to gather all the glory, enjoyment, pleasure and happiness of the world and put it all together, it would not approach one tiny fraction of the bliss that you experience upon realizing the nature of mind.”

– Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

Waking Up from the Dream

My one word focus for 2012 is “faith”.

A highly personal word that surely holds varied meanings depending upon the individual.

In essence, faith – to me – means remembering that material reality is like a dream.

Until we wake up, we’re still in the dream and there’s an automatic pull to believe it’s real.  It takes considerable diligence to retrain the mind to remember the illusory quality of existence.
