Auguste Rodin - The Kiss (1889)
There is a great peace that occupies the same space as this dynamic universe. They are inseparable, like lovers in coitus; to the Tibetans, Yab-Yum, to the Kashmiri, Siva-Sakti.
Go deep enough into the dynamism of the universe and you discover the true nature of the great peace. Go deep enough into the great peace and you discover the true nature of the universal dynamism. Within pure sound, you discover the secret of silence; within pure silence you discover the secret of sound.
Empty your mind of projection, and you will abide within the great peace; abide within the great peace, and you will move in a new way, with the dynamism of the universe. Empty your movement of distraction, and you will move with the dynamism of the universe; move with the dynamism of the universe, and you will abide in the great peace.
Abide in the great peace, and you will realize you are the dynamism of the universe.
Move in the dynamism of the universe, and you will discover you are the great peace.
This truth is not far removed from your daily life, it is the reality of your daily life at this moment; and you are free to access this reality and live in this truth. Here and now.
"It's just a kiss away, a kiss away, a kiss away ..." Or just a breath away; a gentle, in-drawn breath into the heart, with the feeling of unconditional love flowing out.
You are this, this is you.
