We are already perfectly enlightened

see what grows!

In times of difficulty, the message from the Buddhas can help us through… We are already all Buddhas. Starting where we are is not only the best place to begin, it can be the only place to begin. It is also where we end. Starting right here, right now, we are all Buddhas. Clear-minded, drunk, diseased with dementia… are all included. Nothing is seperate from Universal Enlightened nature. Though we may not understand, and even if we do conceptually, we may not realize how it can be true. Here is where faith lives. Deep faith that we are already 100% a buddha, with nothing more to add and nothing to take away. Here we are, right now. Lets start here with our faith and trust this is truth and see what is allowed to grow in our hearts.

Just as mud may hold numerous seeds of all types of plants, we don’t know what may grow until the conditions are correct… warmth, air and water… let’s see what seeds are hidden inside our souls, our hearts. We always will be surprised yet never in doubt that it never was there.

  1. What a sweet reminder.
    I recently had a moment – seeing someone I know well standing a little distance from me, and suddenly the clarity arose that she couldn’t possibly be any different from the way she is down to the last detail. And of course it applies to everyone. Each of us an exquisite expression of life living itself, already perfect exactly the way we are.

  2. I like this post.. first because we are all of us equal, all of us are part of our evolutionary pathway each seed where ever it falls holds within it the power to grow.. like all seeds, they need the right conditions, and some may get all the help in fertile soil while others fall on parched earth needing water and nurturing .. But all grow to the light…
    Each of us now are upon a journey whereby we each need to look into our own hearts and reach inward to our core as we join each other in our searching for that place as we live in our faith and hope for the future to bring peace and harmony.. We each of us hold that seed.. we each just need to water and feed it making it grow..

    An insightful post my friend..
