Suzuki sensei writes: “NIRVANA is Samsara, and no more a transcendental entity to be sought after death or to be reached after crossing the stream of Samsara.”
“…the mind regains its original purity and grace and becomes altogether free from worries and other annoyances.”
Until we truly realize there is no birth, no death, no good, no bad…it all just is.
…it all JUST IS… Suchness?
Until we can truly be here now…be now without judgment or qualification we will not see that we are already here, Nirvana.
Nirvana is not outside of us. Nirvana is the center within.
Enlightenment or Nirvana is not a place we are going or a state we must attain, it is a state we must remember.
My goal, my job, my dharma is to awaken. I must awaken to the truth of who I truly am.
What comes to mind is the Hebrew term: Hineni which is HERE I AM.
CAPPING PHRASE: Around and round the merry-go-round.
CODE PHRASE: Here I am, awake!
