Why make the effort for awakening?
Awakening is the place where nothing disturbs you anymore because the mind is at peace and life is just life. Now there is only the loving and wise response to everything that manifests in front of you and spontaneously no more reaching for happiness outside yourself, because liberation begins when desire ends.
This is the place of peace because the turbulence in your life comes from the mind that always wants something more than it has.
Life then is only the experience of the perpetual feeling that what you have is never enough and that, as a consequence, there is always something more to get.
Awakening is the intuitive recognition there everything is as it is and in itself already perfect. Nothing to get, nothing to attain, nothing to do and nothing to hold on to.
Abiding beautifully in this moment of reality and being one with the powerful, loving emptiness of the desireless state.
Now we will respond intuitively and energetically to whatever is presented, with love, compassion and wisdom.
This is the fruit of our committed Dhamma practice.
May all beings be happy.
