The Nature of the Light/Mind

"Do not make the mistake of imagining that the nature of mind is exclusive to our mind only. It is in fact the nature of everything. It can never be said too often that to realize the nature of mind is to realize the nature of all things." (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, by Sogyal Rinpoche)
Light is the nature of all; the Light is life.

I have described my experience of the Light or Mind as follows:
The Light is boundless, there are no limits.
The Light has always been, there is no birth date.
The Light is purity and unaffected by human good or evil.
The Light is pure presence, being, and awareness.
The Light is impersonal.
The Light is free from all concepts and beliefs.
The Light is eternal bliss. Seeking What You Already Are
To understand the nature of all life, I use my experience of the Light/Mind as a yardstick for life. Here are a few examples.

The Light is boundless, there are no limits.
Life is unlimited. Whether you choose "good" or "evil," your choices are always unlimited.

The Light has always been, there is no birth date.
Life is eternal. Death is not the truth of life and is therefore a dream.

The Light is purity and not affected by human good or evil.
Nothing one does has any impact on the Light as the Light is forever pure. Thus, one’s experiences can neither add nor take away from the Light. The Light is Grace where every moment is a new opportunity to choose again. One is being the Light when one is not judging others by past experiences or beliefs.

The Light is pure presence, being, and awareness.
Life is a constant awareness and acceptance of what is. Nature is pure presence, a tree is effortlessly being.

The Light is impersonal.
Though life may appear as different forms, there are no personalities in Light just the One Light, the one "I" having life.

The Light is free from all concepts and beliefs.
To have life is to be free. When one has no beliefs about nature, diets, health etc, one is truly free to be or experience life as it is. When one is in stillness one is free of all concepts and beliefs.

The Light is eternal bliss.
Where there are no concepts or beliefs, when one is enjoying being, one is in bliss. Life is bliss. It is our nature to be in bliss.

The Light can be experienced in silence or stillness.

To live as the Light one has to forsake the world's ways, of beliefs and concepts, and surrender to the Light that is eternal bliss.

It is our nature to be the Light.

Light and Love,
