“The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.” - LaoTzu
Your true, formless, ineffable being
Is like the most comfortable chair you can imagine
You just sink into it
You don’t worry about falling
You don’t have to support yourself
It does all the work
It is effortless and constant
The purest relaxation
This is the true nature of being
Don’t believe me?
Close your eyes
Take a couple of deep low breaths
Now put your attention on the simple feeling of being
Do you need to maintain it?
Do you need to make it happen?
Did you create it?
Is it ever not there?
For just a moment set aside all beliefs and assumptions
Leave outside any conflicting thought
Leave aside any memory or ambition
What do you find?
Are you gone?
Have you been left outside?
You are just here
A simple presence
Still, effortless, essential
Like a comfy chair that you never have to get out of
Like that favorite sweater you never want to take off
Like that old friend who never lets you down
It is right here
You're right here
Sink in to your being
That is all
