22) THE ONLY PATH TO WHOLENESS

Accepting what is, we find it to be perfect.
What seemed distorted is seen as true.
What seemed lacking is seen as abundant.
What seemed worn out is seen as fresh and new.

Possessing little, we are content.
Too much stuff and we lose our way.

When we reside at the center,
our actions nurture all things.
We don’t act out of ego needs,
so our actions are enlightened.
We don’t claim to be perfect,
so our ideas are welcomed.
We aren’t looking for reward,
so our teaching is enduring and accessible to all.
We don’t try to control or convince anyone,
so opposition is not an issue.

“Accept what is,
and find it to be perfect”
is not an idle phrase.
Acceptance of life
is the only path to wholeness.

However there are moments when I affirm that resurrection, few and far between as they are. I affirm it when I stand up for those who are forced to live on their knees, when I speak for those who have had their tongues torn out, when I cry for those who have no more tears left to shed.”

When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what's left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

“You cannot be naïve about evil. You cannot be naïve to the reality that there are human beings and human situations which have totally identified with the dark side of reality. They are malicious. Realism teaches you to put up appropriate boundaries so that people can't do any more evil than possible. But that doesn't mean you do evil back to them.”

“If, then, my awareness of the past and future makes me less aware of the present, I must begin to wonder whether I am actually living in the real world.”

Now you can enjoy and honor the things of this world without giving them an importance and significance they don't have. You can participate in the dance of creation and be active without attachment to outcome and without placing unreasonable demands upon the world: Fulfill me, make me happy, make me feel safe, tell me who I am. The world cannot give you those things, and when you no longer have such expectations, all self-created suffering comes to an end. All such suffering is due to an overvaluation of form and an unawareness of the dimension of inner space. When that dimension is present in your life, you can enjoy things, experiences, and the pleasures of the senses without losing yourself in them, without inner attachment to them, that is to say without becoming addicted to the world.
