Daily Reflection: identifying

look no further

Strong emotions arise – this is our true nature – but it is our nature also not to attach the figment of the ‘self’ to this emotion, claiming it, using it to build our identity like a house of cards.

The emotion lands like a beautiful and rare butterfly to wake our entire being, but we must not capture this butterfly, pin it down like a specimen, for its form will turn to powder almost immediately if we do.  An alien’s motive to possess, to archive, will dam its flow of energy and we will become lost forever in mere records of this magnificent creature.

The butterfly’s beauty may be irresistable to us, but just like us it is spirit incarnated in protein and water, its lifespan a brief miracle, its mission to participate in the world’s weather. Survival is crucial so its wings flap at different rates to evade predators and at the same time to activate our unconditional loving kindness. It fleetingly teaches us how to be and therefore to know, and it only exists because we perceive it.

The butterfly flapping by has neither thoughts nor self.  It plays its part without hesitation in the massive fluxing of energy out in the vast field of awareness. And so must we.

No questions, no speculations, no static or sticky fingers to prevent our existence being smooth for the re-balancing of the planet. We have already interfered too much with our mind games!

So, let everything go in order to utterly surrender to your flapping mission of love and light.
