Enso: fullness/emptiness

The ultimate symbol of Zen art is the Enso, where an ink circle is brushed with just one stroke. This symbol represents fullness, yet it is empty. To be completely empty but perfectly aware is the experience of enlightenment. The squirrel is a perfect example of this state... he is free of concepts and is without concern. He is not searching for a better future. He is perfectly at ease in the present reality.

Another name for this space that includes everything could be 'squirrelove'. This space or presence is totally pure and not separate from anything. It is totally benevolent and fully aware. Listen below to the famous squirrel mystic of Sweden, Den Lilla Ekorren, as he sings his song that beautifully describes "squirrelove".

May all beings experience the purity of squirrelove that is their true essence!

It's OK to be Lazy! & No one is Guilty of anything!

No matter what you do,
you can't be more of who you are!
Even if you think that you are flawed,
you are totally perfect and whole!
You have never been separate,
never abandoned,
never not completely taken care of.
Only a thought would tell you otherwise!
And if you put all your thoughts
in a big wicker basket
and look into it,
what do you see?
Absolutely nothing!
You have been upset over nothing!
It's all been a simple misunderstanding!

I love listening to this soothing talk
by Candice O'Denver called

And here's Mooji saying the same thing!

"Only from the heart
Can you touch the sky."

Just bask in the light of wisdom awareness!
Everything is saturated with the light of pure love!

Do you have any idea how amazing you are?
No matter what is going on in your life,
you can, at any moment, just stop and rest!

Are you OK?

What do you experience?
Spacious calm!

Luminous awareness is the
basis of everything we think, feel, and see!
Without awareness nothing could be experienced!

Don't keep looking outside yourself!
You're it!
You are what you are looking for!

Nothing Stops You from Being

An idea about what enlightenment is...
brings to mind ideas about
what we need to do
to be enlightened!
But there is nothing
between you and awareness!
The "searching" for it prevents you
from seeing what is already there.

That Illumined One
Who keeps
Seducing the formless into form
Had the charm to win my
Only a Perfect One
Who is always
Laughing at the word
Can make you know
