A Living True Relationship
Living-true-relationships: these are connections that prosper from observations looking for more participation . . . never . . . inspections looking for the judgments of performance. When you experience the fulfillment of such a relationship — a living-true-relationship — you have an awareness of connection without any credits or scores for the performance. It is effortless . . . it is painless . . . it is gratifying.
There are many options in every moment of life, but in such a true relationship you are without options. You have surrendered all of your options to your commitment . . . and this is why — even though they are desired, living - true - relationships are generally avoided.
You fear of giving up your options (safety nets and backup plans) and these kind of authentic relationships are where options are no longer options. Survival instincts tell you to run like the wind.
Touch the teachings of the greatest masters: "be as death while alive," they tell you, "have no options." When you have this as a choice of no choice, you are at the gates of surrender at all times. This is authenticity; sit and seek no results in it . . . just be in this state of complete zero — shunya. This is the gateway to the land of miracles. You cannot calculate your way into this land, but once you are in — you do not want to leave — you have the time of your life — you become a beacon for others.
