Day 18 – Flowing like water

Because we are so used to the material realm, we naturally try to match that format in our perceptions. Where things exist as separate entities, separated by distance and time.

However, they don’t actually exist that way. They are all part of one flowing, interconnected whole, and spiritual practice is the (attempt!) to live in tune with that. The more in tune we become, the more we become able to see things as they truly are, and the more we are able to act effectively in the world. And if you see everyone as yourself, could there be anything more natural than wanting to help them move from suffering?

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of Compassion,
so I return to my one mind and rely upon it.

One mind,
the Way that isn’t a fixed path,
its inherent brightness is never troubled by birth and death.
I vow to realize one mind without delay.
