When we allow our pure self to come forth, we shower abundance and joy to every being around us.  Trees, flowers and people want to be in our presence because we give out pure joy that  has no opposite.

But why is it hard to be in touch with our essence? Because it is covered up by the mud of our incessant thinking. We don’t allow things to happen. We are constantly fighting the present moment: we are burdened by the past and worried about the future. We are focused on the myriad forms that surround us and forget the space that allows all things to be.

If we start by observing what is happening without judging or labeling, we are making progress. We let the drama play out. We observe the interplay of forms without getting entangled with them. This non-labeling or non-judging stops our mind and we are then able to feel the aliveness that is within us.

Our true essence lies pure and vibrant underneath our various forms.  It is untouched by anything that we did or was done to us. It is like gold that is hidden under the mud. If we pick it up and wipe away the mud, the gold sparkles and shines.
