One’s Natural State

What is keeping one from being in one’s natural state?
One is constantly moving way from oneself.
One wants to be happy;
One is dissatisfied with one’s experiences of life.
One wants new ones.
One wants to perfect oneself,
To change oneself.
Trying to be something other than what one is, is
The going away from oneself.
It is the resistance to What-Is.
The desire to alter this you, is
The only energy that sustains it.
In the absence of this energy,
You cannot continue;
Then, the natural state shines effortlessly.



Phenomena eclipse the Background. Free yourself from the preoccupation with names and forms and see what remains.

All phenomena point to your existence as the center of perception.

However, until you take your attention off of the pointers, you will remain ensnared.

The senses, by their very nature, chase after pleasant sensations.

That explains why we want to hear great music, see beautiful sights, eat delicious foods, etc.

Yet, this enjoyment is the snare; it binds us to the sensate world. Involvement of any type binds.
