What You Are

Cheryl at ocean

What you are, what you really are is always there, always available.
It is not a state like bliss or happiness or peace.

It cannot be gained or lost. You cannot hold onto it. You are it.
It cannot be described, but many have tried.

Confusion and suffering come from thinking our feelings or emotions are who we are.
We try to hold onto feelings of happiness, love, bliss. We push away feelings of sadness, anger, boredom.

It’s like the analogy of the ocean. The surface may be stormy, in turmoil, or it may be calm. But drop down into the depths. Go deep, what do you find?

Don’t try to describe it, it doesn’t need words.

Keep going.
