This life is nothing more than an open door to leave the clutches of fear, darkness and savagery and awaken within the inherent light of all being.
Here the shadow of impermanence no longer menaces because each moment is now something ungraspable, wonderful and not enslaved by before or after.
Things just as they are, are no longer things.
The burden of forgiveness and forgiven crumbles to dust when self and other are dropped for the freedom of non-attachment to self and other.
Past deeds dissolve because you are free to change, their burden illuminated, then turned to silence.
Future deeds change course and quality because the shackles of darkness have no hold.
In this way, all things emerge into light.
Even this light is returned to the silence of non-attachment.
Here true compassion beyond self gratification lives for the benefit of all.
