Many through One

Our relative impermanent life experience, our pasts and futures, unfold within the changeless timeless Present, similar to the transitioning images of a motion picture which are given life through the continuously shining light of the projector.
The light of Consciousness produces and supports the appearance of beings and things on the screen of space-time. It is the changeless permanent essence of countless individualized, temporary expressions of Itself. Hence, Buddhists assert: “There is no individual person and there is no independent universe.”
The light of Consciousness is free of changing conditions, though enabling the appearance and experience of changing conditions. It radiates eternally, never diminished, and is our true home in which we dwell forever.

Shared Destiny

Mystics have characterized our relative, material life as dreamlike, because of its fluctuating, impermanent nature and our immersion in conditioned-mindedness.
They also remind us of our shared destiny, with the assurance that “all dreamers eventually awaken” to know the inherent freedom of spiritual wholeness.

Confirmation

While walking our spiritual path of awakening, insights dawn which give us clarity on certain aspects of life. These recognitions unfold from within us. Often through the years, soon after experiencing a particular insight, I happen upon a passage in one of my teacher’s books describing the same realization, and think, “He has already been here.”
That’s why he is the teacher!
