25Feb From the Founder
Is nothing but illumination-
Alas, we fail to enjoy it.
Illumination, enlightenment, is the moment of knowing our true nature. The veil of ignorance is lifted and we perceive the underlying reality.
Aspiration is our longing, our inner cry, our efforts towards illumination.
Just as the great redwood tree exists in the tiny seed, so too is our realization inside of our aspiration. It is said that the longest journey begins with the first step. In fact the entire journey exists in that first step.
If we can perceive this then we can rejoice in the knowledge that our aspiration is indeed the assurance of our realization.
