Melt Into Your Own Heart, February 24, 2021

But inside genuineness and caring, caring about yourself, caring about the world, caring about others, just caring, you find the ability to surrender. Caring is surrender. There’s no distinction between the two. If you don’t care, if you are out of the emotion of caring and caringness and doing something else, you’ve failed, and you’re going to keep on failing. So, how do you remember care? You remember how delicate it is to suffer. You remember how easily suffering can replace genuineness, and therefore you don’t guard against it. You don’t guard against suffering, building a wall with the four noble truths and the eight fold path or the eight limbs of Patanjali, and so on and so forth. You don’t build up walls of strategies to attack this problem you think you have. You begin to melt into your own heart where the dissolution of the self, the entire structure of it, happens through Grace. And then instantly you begin to feel the Bliss, which is the intoxicating fragrance of release. Bliss in the spiritual sense is not waking state happiness. And that Bliss begins to flood and take over your mind. You can feel its presence in the body as Shakti. You can feel Bliss as Absolute clarity in the non-dual. Bliss connotes all of these flavors, and there ensues liberation.
