“In the beginning it looks as though you need to embrace life, you need to accept life, you need to allow life. But really, what you are, is the space in which everything is already embraced, already accepted, already allowed, because it’s happening. The proof that it’s already allowed is because it’s already happening. You, trying to allow, is already too late, it’s already allowed”.
The real search isn’t a search into tomorrow or to anywhere other than now. It’s starting to look into the very nature of this moment. In order to do that, you have to “stand in your own two shoes”, as my teacher used to say. What she meant by “standing in your own two shoes” is you have to look clearly into your own experience. Stop trying to have someone else’s experience. Stop chasing freedom or happiness, or even spiritual enlightenment. Stand in your own shoes, and examine closely : what’s happening right here and right now? Is it possible to let go of trying to make anything happen? Even in this moment, there may be some suffering, there may be some unhappiness, but even if there is, is it possible to no longer push against it, to try to get rid of it, to try to get somewhere else ?
“God has made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.”
Deep in my soul I heard the Laughter of God, ringing in silvery cadences through the timbers of my being, breaking the human bonds and limitations as a strong yet gentle wind in the forest sweeps aside the cobwebs. The hard, fast knots that I have tied slipped loose, and the snarls of beliefs broke free. The river of my human life, frozen by a thousand and one false ideas and teachings, broke joyously into expression and went bounding to the infinite sea of Life, to be lost and found at the same time. One dark cave of fear after another was illuminated by the light of the laughter, and swampy areas of sick thoughts were dried up instantly. Parched sands of hopelessness and futile effort were drenched by the living waters – absorbed instantly like a wave braking on the sands. God laughing at me, and my puny efforts to make things happen; to make heaven appear; to attain the Sonship. Not the laugh of derision, but of infinite compassion, a laughter so deep and sweet, so pure and glorious that everything in the nature of struggle gave way before it.
