Body of Mystery
The force of mediocrity is unrelenting and profound. It holds almost all people in captivity more ruthless than any dictator. Life slipping away moment by moment, drowned in the shallow consolations offered by a sleeping mass. How anyone can bear is beyond my reckoning. This human world is a gift and possibility of such bliss and wonder and yet almost all sleep walk through it in abject misery. A moment here and there of happiness, of furtive pleasure, of attention and the ego is satisfied for another day. Truly this is to be a king living as a beggar.
Your body is a mystery beyond imagining. Its pleasures and joy - not the cruddy ones people run after but the ones hidden within the heart, the mind, the subtle body are so vast and profound that when felt it is hard to even move. You mind, stripped of its idiot conditioning is a vastness of supreme wonderment. Who can bear this joy? Who can survive this bliss? No one!!!! When the truth of bliss and who you are dawns then the ego vanishes like the moon in the morning sunlight.
People say spiritual discipline is hard but isn’t samsara hard?! My god, look at the suffering of it and it ends in death. Your body, right now, contains hidden realms of bliss and wonder! Your heart contains the perfection of beauty of the divine!
Some people burn with this longing. most meander through life like sheep waiting for the slaughter. If your heart is afire you know it. If it is not then strive at least to wake up to the point where the spark lights it up. If your heart is afire then don’t wait. Teachings are there, the methods wait to be taught, the practices work, the Master is never absent ......... if you truly long for the divine then I can assure you that so long as this body is alive and animated by this force of infinity there will be the path - available to absolutely anyone .... the price is not money but longing.
