1. Meditate as Buddhahood
Before you go on chasing consciousness, perhaps you might find the right rest in a moment of space for or from yourself
just enough to get you to where you always sought to get to,
while seeking too far and fast
to find it where you always where or in who or what you've always been.
The voice in your head that you think you are uniquely adapted through the collages of other voices in the world is not you.
You are the sky of silence beneath, and before all that.
Far too infinite to define.
Rather then move from the anxious place of seeking Know you are the peace that needs no movement.
You are light itself - aka, the Buddha.
Your smile, like the Sun.
Every time it rises, the world gets to delight in the gift you are even more
And open even wider to the gift that they are
that can not be given, nor recieved
only remembered reflected in and as a Smile.
3. Love Your Body
You are the Universe - in ecstatic motion, as Rumi said.
What good is a bright mind if the body is left thirsty?
And enjoy - this gift that you are.
As you embrace your physical vehicle, as it is, Heaven meets Earth.
Declutter the unnecessary.
Which is most of what you have left lying around or thought you might need,
To make space to meet your presence that is already always full.
5. Send Love to All Beings
Easy, you are already this Love
One with all beings. It does not serve anyone for your to hoard it all to yourself.
And recieve the gift of not even giving just being grattitude
life is much more delicious - when you are there to savor every bite!
