There is a primal purity or innocence of being to life. The sun is purely what it is; the moon is quietly innocent, being pure moon; the stars stream light in utter purity and innocence; the mountains arise in primal purity; the sea is innocent, the rivers; the fields; and every animal, bird, fish or insect is utterly and purely what it is and what it is meant to be. All is pure and natural except mankind. Only we have the capacity to forget our real nature. Only we have the capacity to reverse and twist things into what they are not meant to be.
Every human being deeply values peace, harmony, beauty, freedom, and every other expression of human happiness. Please slow down and read this list again. Do you really value these qualities? Why? Because they are spontaneous expressions of our true nature when it is unblocked and freely expressed. They come from deep inside us. Then why don’t we just get busy happily living our real natures? This is the big question thinkers of all ages have wrestled with.
My view on it is that in our development we have recurrently reversed things in our psyche, like a magnetic field when you switch the poles. What is pure, open, curious and joyous in us becomes injured, and thus mistrusted. Often, at this early stage of development a sense of “self consciousness” born of insecurity and anxiety takes control because it “feels safer” then developing wisdom about how to live open, curious, and spontaneously “innocent” without being abused and hurt by others.
We need to reverse things back within our minds, nervous and chemical systems to be as they are meant to be and truly are in their essential nature. Then alone will our deepest, luminous nature of pure consciousness arise as peace, harmony and joyous good will and melt away the dark core of grief that feeds our destructive natures. This is the resurrection of Christ within us, the enlightenment of Buddha. This is our true liberation.
