True Nature


When you see everything changing before your eyes,

have confidence in what you cannot see.

You cannot see the dance of energy

that forms the cosmos,

yet it fills all of space.

You cannot see the bonding forces

that knit your body into being,

yet you are here.

You cannot see your own true nature,

yet like the Tao it is ever present.

It is what is reading these words

at this moment,

here and now.

That is what you can trust.*
