23 Breaking through Illusions

Pure existence godbeing in my own awake space,
Self-existent traveler through the quantum cosmos,
Stirred awake as I dream, I know you are real!
Please free me from illusion and world-intoxication.

The joy is not knowing! Like before the first kiss.
The veil is fluttering. Who invites me in?
You are dangerous, dream lady!
You are illusion’s death grip.
My eyes are downcast. The gown will fall!

Hidden Dragon! Ravish me at last!
We are no virgins! Pure existence, awake!
This is not love! It is always the beginning!
Eyes open! Eyes open!

Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Laugh with me!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Laugh with me!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Laugh with me!

The veil is thick with life stories. They are the world. Behind the world lies the godspace field, which has but one reality—itself. Unwrap the question that has brought you to this prayer and see in it your need to accept both of these realities within a singular vision of truth.

As you delve deeply into this prayer, you will confront not only the mystery of your godspace core but also the mystery of your particular life story. In an absolute sense, your individual life has no value, arising, as it does, as one life within a sea of infinite possibilities. Nevertheless, when you as a unique being see behind the stories that have concealed you from godspace, you will have to accept the specific conditions of your life in an absolute sense as well. It is an illusion to fall for the stories of life as if they are real. It is equally an illusion to say that they are not.

Your experiences of world space and godspace occur as a single event within a greater godspace field that exists within infinite dimensions of itself. The lesson you are asked to contemplate here is that illusion needs truth and truth needs illusion—absolutely. You will know that you have mastered this lesson only when you hear the undying laughter of godbeing/buddhas ringing throughout the cosmos.
