20. Realize the vision of your Higher Self through playful Buddha magic.
Fully Feeling and Embracing Your Presence
The essence of Buddhahood arises from the lotus of love within your heart. And truly, when you live from and within the vibration of inner contact with Presence, your awakened consciousness sings of God's great desire to know all within the life of all created beings.
Sentient ones feel, and through the feeling body there is contact with Presence. To fully embrace your Presence, you must feel the currents of light that flow. This feeling is not a sympathetic relationship but the acceptance of the continual stream of light as a river of fire that washes through your being, interpenetrating, through the divine vibration of light, all planes and dimensions of life. When through an understanding of your Buddha Nature you can feel this awareness by placing your attention within the sanctity of selfhood in God, then you exonerate the past and your propensities to misunderstand the essence of God, who you are. And you can fully know with a surety who you are as a God-realized monad individuated as an identity, yet born of the selfsame suchness and Presence as all.
As a co-creator, you understand the processes of life, learning anew through each moment something of that mindfulness that flows through your core and out through your extremities, blessing and raising life that is also of this same suchness. When you appreciate through mindfulness the essence of God-good within all life, all life embraces you, and your Buddha Nature shines forth within all.
Much has been spoken of forgiveness and of mercy and of compassion as the way toward Buddhahood. It is key for each one to understand the nature of these, not only as symbolic of surrender to Oneness but as the very essence of the overflowing awareness that each one must embrace within the budding lotus of light, who you are.
Manjushri I am. And through this voice I exemplify perfect presence around and within you, for you to know the peace-commanding presence of joy, of fidelity, of harmony. Be one with Buddha. Be one of Mother. I am yours in the didactic experience whereby through mindfulness you know God. Thank you, blessed hearts.
1. bhikkhu: [Pali]: A Buddhist monk, mendicant; a devotee of the Buddha who has vowed to follow the precepts of the Buddha.
2. terton: Literally, terton means “treasure revealer.” In Tibetan, terton refers to an individual who in previous lifetimes was a disciple of Padma Sambhava. These tertons later reincarnated to spread the teachings (treasures) they received, which were deliberately hidden until a more auspicious time for their revelation.
