Suchness Speaks

I am the nature of all phenomena.
I am the root of existence.
This pervasiveness is your true state.
I am the sublime source of all manifestation.
My own being is the mind of perfect purity.
Pure is taught to be my nature.
The nature of what is called awareness is taught as being ceaseless, all encompassing, and all creating.
Everything is made and generated from my mind of perfect purity.
I am the core of all the Buddhas of the three times.
I am the father and the mother to all sentient beings of the three-fold worlds Nirmanakaya, Samboghakaya, and Dharmakaya.
I am the cause for all that exists, both animate and inanimate.
Not one thing is that does not emanate from me.
I am known through direct experience where there is no attempt to reify this pure experience of awareness.
My pristine awareness permeates the universe and is manifested as the universe and is known through beauty.
I gaze into everything and into everyone as my own being.
My pristine awareness presents itself in every aspect of existence,
and I am not a punishing ruler;
my pristine awareness cannot be anthropomorphized.
The world of phenomena is nothing else than the manifested forms of my awakened awareness.
I am the all-creating one.
I am the awareness of perfect purity.
The multiplicity of all emanates from my awareness.
The multiplicity of things appears in individuality.
I rejoice in the way sentient beings appear to us as form, appearance, and color.
This rejoicing reveals the innate, compassionate nature of my pristine awareness.
All that appears is my reality.
These words are the expression of the seminal heart essence in its purest form.
Understanding the message of the teachings means discovering one’s own true condition.
