TRUST THE PRESENCE THAT HOLDS IT ALL
Be courageous enough to meet life from the unknown—without a safety net, without hope, without past, and without future.
Without the hope of salvation—without running away from or running toward anything in your mind—you are forced to fall into the open space of being-ness.
And in this openness, you fall out of time and out of imagination, right into the present.
In other words, you become present—you become totally available to the essential being-ness of life.
In presence, you and life have collapsed into each other—there is no longer a “future life,” it’s all happening now.
In this eternal now, you and life are one—and when you are one with what is, how can you possibly fear what is?
It’s like fearing your self, and that’s ridiculous—because your self, the being-ness that you already are, never leaves you.
Being-ness is totally dependable—it is always here.
Now you are in touch with a deeper kind of trust—one that is not based on something.
It is no longer a conceptual trust, but one that is inherent in the nature of presence.
It is inherent in the nature of life, because life is always what is here in the present—it can’t be anywhere else.
This deeper trust has no meaning to the mind, but complete meaningfulness to your natural state.
And even if you fail, even if life leads you to a seeming dead-end, even if you are handed an unwanted circumstance, even if you don’t get to your desired destination of perfect happiness, even if your heart is broken open over and over again—you will still trust the presence that holds it all.
