Response to Love Bliss
Devotion is the natural love response to what is most beautiful, most sublime. Devotion is how the always already perfect freedom and wisdom of intrinsic natural great awareness resonates within the human form. In the presence of the sublime it begins to resonate, vibrate in a harmonic sympathy with the wholeness of wholeness that is Buddha Nature.
Devotion and compassion are the sympathetic resonance of divinity. Devotion flows up from us into the divine and compassion flows down from divinity into us. Both of these flows are of the same substanceless diaphanous luminosity.
When a tuning fork that is pitched to middle C is tapped on a hard surface it begins to vibrate. If it is then brought close to a tuning fork also pitched to middle C, but untapped, then that one will also begin to vibrate. This is called sympathetic resonance. This is the relationship between the human mind and the wisdom bliss of Buddha Nature.
Devotion is the feeling in the HeartMind when the resonance pattern of wisdom bliss comes close to a human being whose life is attuned to spirituality. Compassion, the flow of tender-hearted mercy is what a wisdom being feels when encountering a being still trapped in confusions. Both are the resonance of divinity, wholeness, Prajnaparamita, Buddha Nature, the Single Great Bindu flowing between and betwixt and within of as itself. - t.k., recent teachings on the naturalness of love bliss
