Life has but one purpose for all sentient beings, and that is to live with a deepening of understanding, that each of us is responsible to all of life, and the one purpose that we all share is the same. And that is to transform ourselves through recognizing, and accepting our good, and not so good tendencies, and making right choices that will ultimately serve in the upliftment of human Consciousness. This would mean that we all have to stop hiding behind the veil of ignorance that we cling so desperately to.
The way to remove ignorance is through knowledge. Knowledge helps in the removing of confusions, and misunderstanding, fears, and doubts. Knowledge of The Truth comes through studying, reflecting, and meditation. Studying the teachings of those who have overcome the confusions, and the ignorance of life, and through personal experience. These people have come back to tell us exactly how we can all go about ourselves in right mind.
To center oneself on the spiritual path, and develop spiritual practices that strengthen the mind, and expand the awareness beyond our limited perception is what we need to do. Because most of us live in that realm of distorted perception. We have of course, the lack of clarity, and this comes from that constant duality, the battle within ourselves. It’s not so much that we struggle with what is right but, our struggle, that battle within, has to do with knowing what is right yet, still wanting to cloud that with our own perceptions. In other words, from the ego base of wanting to do things our own way, when in fact there is only One Truth, yet there are many ways that humanity goes about revealing The Truth, or having The Truth revealed.
The human existence is a constant balancing of the good qualities with the negative aspects of ourselves. When I spoke to you earlier of channels being clogged or open, I had spoken about the right and the left. Symbolically, when the right channel is cleared it is done by self-acceptance. And the left channel symbolically, is cleared by the penetration of our dream state, or dream bardo. To remove these imbalances that I’m speaking to you of we do not simply erase them or forget about them, for all impressions remain until they are balanced. So, for an imbalance to be removed so to speak, we must first embrace that and then transform it. We must be willing or must take the responsibility to examine who and what we are, our motives, our intent, and our actions, our thoughts that lead to actions and the effects of those actions. It’s not so much what we do in life, but more how we go about ourselves.
Womb-born beings are the manifestation of previous thoughts and actions overtime. There are many, many things that occur in a person’s lifetime that they do not consciously remember, yet every action is a reaction to one’s previous experiences, thoughts, and actions.
A main point throughout this teaching that I will say to you now, is that it is very important for all human beings to stop trying to be perfect, you see that’s important. It’s not so much trying to do everything perfectly, but it’s more about self-acceptance. Coming to grips with our own ugliness, so to speak. And keeping at the forefront in our consciousness, all the good that we have done.
