Loving just what is

“To be ready to step off the wheel of becoming is as important as realizing who and what you are. You will be happy and liberated, but your game will be gone. For some period of time, you may not know how to talk to people or what to do, and your life may become unfamiliar. This is a very mysterious way to be. My teacher used to say that when you really realize what you are, you’re like a baby Buddha. You don’t just pop out of the womb knowing what to be when you’ve been so busy being someone else. It’s like taking your first wobbly steps. But you have to be willing to be wobbly and have some insecurity, because if you’re not willing to be insecure, you’re going to go right back to the old forms of self-protection and seeking. It is very strange to be a lover of what is. It is familiar to be a lover of some things and not other things. But when you have this new experience of loving just what is, it is also strangely familiar. It’s like a sense of knowing that it has always been this way. It seems very ancient, yet also just born.”
