The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

No Man Is An Island

Tathagata is one of the names
given to Gautama the Buddha.
It means one who lives
in the suchness of life,
who accepts whatsoever is the case,
who accepts everything totally.
Even death is absolutely accepted
because his trust in existence is infinite.
It knows no bounds, it is unconditional.
To accept all
is the highest peak of meditation,
all the sweetness of life
and all the bitterness of life,
with equanimity, choicelessly,
with no likes, no dislikes.
Once this starts happening
you become a rejoicing,
you become a serenity,
you become utter silence
and a silence which is not dead,
a silence which sings,
a silence which dances,
a silence which is not empty,
a silence which is overfull.
This is going to be your method:
Learn to accept life as it comes.
When something happens, accept it;
when it disappears, accept it.
When pleasure comes, accept it;
when it evaporates, accept it.
And the same with pain.
Remain non-judgmental,
just a silent witness to all.
This is the most profound secret
of all the Buddhas,
of all the awakened ones.

  1. I hope I can achieve anything near to it one day… I’m still grieving and heartbroken from the loss of loved ones.

  2. Indeed…all things lead to the One (in each of us) and therein lies our connection, like an archipelago of souls.
    Thanks.
