This Perfect Way

This perfect way of being with you knows no true obstacle, once we accept that we are being lived exactly as we are, with no need for any struggle to become what that already is — what we already are.

Our true nature awakens to itself when we abandon all mimicry and fixation.

Released from the twin burdens of hope and fear, it is free to function unhindered, revealing the full radiance of our loving spontaneity in the astonishing feat of simply appearing here at all!

To imagine that any of this magical display is a product of personal will can then be enjoyed as a fun way to play at make believe.

We do not seek to find the truth — we are merely no longer eager to cherish our whimsical opinions, and so the truth naturally unfolds as this innocent flower of Union.

When we consider these matters together, we are pierced with the most intense love for each other. This makes us very happy!

Our unique individualities are outshone by that which we know to be indivisible. Still, duality has a lot to offer, so we can appreciate the game!

Undisturbed by ripples in the dream, the confounding paradoxes that stump the philosophers no longer preoccupy us. We have discarded all judgments of “yes” versus “no” to those for whom such pursuits still elicit some enthusiasm.

Letting go, we leave things as they are. What’s difficult is grasping and avoiding, so we take the easy way, relaxing into the spacious luminosity of the Great Whatever.

There are those who go about as if there is some absence of this kiss, yet all the while ten thousand lips are brushing tenderly against our heart, kissing from the inside out, healing any sense of absence – what better purpose to be lips?

Attendant only to the whisper of the Heart, we harbor no prejudice for or against the senses, or cling to notions about purity and taint. What’s real is real in the midst of all appearances, experiences, and virtual charades!

The wise may have no likes or dislikes, but we are fools for Love and so play in the world as if there are two. It’s fun to dress up, but we don’t forget that we are not our costumes!

Gain and loss, right and wrong, past and future — we tossed those dice from the Rainbow Bridge and then enjoyed the sunset. Empty and marvelous!

The ultimate destination of things, beyond which nothing can go, is like sweet fresh bird song greeting us each dawn. Good Morning, Playmate!

Everything is empty, lucid, and self-illuminating. There is no strain, no effort needed to fall forever in this Love we are. Let’s do it again and again!

It no longer matters to us how things are conditioned, whether by being or non-being. What silly concepts! What is, is the same as what is not. That which is not is the same as what is. Simple enough – forget about it!

If only this is remembered, we need not concern ourselves with being perfect! We can be as we are, without requiring anything to be other than it is too.

This is all a Great Mystery. Beyond it, we cannot say. We can only nod, hold each other by the hand, and smile in heartfelt gratitude at the miracle of such a Perfect Way!
