First of all the Lalla on line course was very well received and a joy to teach. - The depth of her timeless teachings came thru beautifully.
Have you noticed that every moment demands your undivided presence? Especially when the appearances seem to get more challenging and stress-invoking, which tends to be the experience here on this planet till you step out of the conditioned mind and locate in and as Love.
I had some simple ponderings. I feel sometimes a little odd in this world of appearances. No parents (I mean of course I had them, but they died 35+ years ago), no husband or wife, no house, no children or grandchildren, and god knows what I am forgetting here. Then, a sweet body that is challenged and who knows? At the time of the kidney transplant they are planning to take my two hard-working kidneys out before giving me a new, radiant one. (BTW no surgery date set yet, will keep you posted; should be somewhere in autumn).
What’s left? No-Thing but the attunement with Being! How lucky am I? Being intimate with what is just for the love of it. I was bicycling with the hot sun warming my skin and bones. How fortunate to be alive and here. I have the good fortune to have food every day; I even have choices of what to eat. Amazing.
On top of it all I am here to serve the sweetness of Being at all times and all situations. Bringing happiness for all beings I guess I have nothing better to do. So much gratitude for the entire identity killing that has happened and is still going on. Wondrous emptiness is now filled with gratitude which brings wholeness moving as true nature in this world.
Please take a moment and acknowledge the Beauty that is shining out of your eyes and beaming right back at you. Every moment, even when you forget She is here.
Yes, there are challenges and yes, as Buddha said Life is marked with suffering. That’s part of being in a body, not very comfortable; yes, very painful at times and also amazingly mysterious. Don’t you think so too?
Please take a moment to realize that everything can drop at any moment. This body, this mind, this or that feeling or sensation – not in your time, but Her time. Where do you want to put your attention when the moment comes…..which is every moment?!
All love, Marlies Myoku
