The fact that Your Endless Presence exists utterly, totally alone, is a permanent guarantee of never being threatened by any outside force—for there is no outside force.
There is nothing that could come in from outside, because Your Own Endlessness has no outside. It is impossible to need a protective barrier around Your Presence, because the fact that It is endless means there is no edge or border at which to put one.
For Eternity, there is nothing that could upset You. As Utter Oneness, You are completely at ease in the certainty of being unopposed forever, undisturbed forever. Perfect Calm is the entirety of what exists—as the endless, endless, reach of Your own “infinitely outstretched” Presence.
All there is, is borderless, unchecked Openness, which is alive—the endless “overflowing” of Softly Present Life.
As All, as the Entirety of Existence, all You ever know is that deepest, all-abiding Peace and Joy of being able to live completely defenseless. You never are naively open to attack—but simply can’t be protected or have a guard up, for again, Your Own All leaves nothing else from which to need protecting.
Absolutely nothing exists besides You, Your Infinitely Gentle Self.
There is only wide open, gentle Unprotectedness—being serenely, boundlessly free—a never-ending expanse of carefree Ease.
This open, free Ease is Unconditional Love. It is un-conditional because It never is faced by a condition—just “more and more” of Its own endless Openness. This gentle Open Love is the all-embracing softness with which Awareness, You, are now present and aware.
How indescribably delicate is Awareness as It now is being present?
How utterly, completely effortless is Your Existence as It goes about Its business of simply being? Yet how immovable and stable is It? Does Existence ever waver?
Feel how delightfully un-labored—how permanently easy—it is for Existence to simply, effortlessly, be here, now. Being this effortlessness is One’s Life Work, One’s Career—for Eternity.
That is all there is to It. Existence is simply being.
Existence never works at existing. It never struggles to be. There is absolutely nothing that has to be done.
Your Existence never is trying to arrive. It never needs to attain.
Existence never has to try, period. It just is.
There is no possibility of exertion in Existence for It already perfectly is, and nothing else is.
As Perfect Existence is already All That Is, there never is anything besides Its own Presence that It has to accomplish. Being need not work to sustain Itself over time, for in Absolute Being, there is no time. As this changeless Perfect Being, You never can have anything go wrong. You never make a mistake. There is nothing Perfect Being can do, except be, effortlessly. For Eternity, Your Life is delightfully effort-less.
Your Being is Divine Effortlessness Itself. This Effortlessness can no more withhold Itself from being All, than Being can withhold Itself. As It already is, It never can be delayed—or put aside.
Effortless Being never can be escaped.
Right now, stop. “Feel” how delightfully effortless Existence’s Ease of Being is. How un-tense and utterly “relaxed” is absolute Ease—endless Ease?
This Ease, which is all of Existence, isn’t a state You are in. It is what You are. This Ease that You forever are—is so easy, so effortlessly simple, It is not in the realm of words.
Existence’s Ease is the gently alive Bliss You now are alive to being. How marvelously soft and gentle is this Delightful Bliss to Its own Presence? How fully “immersed” in Its own Tenderness is It?
This endlessly overflowing Ease is what You never, ever, fail to be. This Infinite Ease that You permanently are being is never, never, never going to go away. It can’t. Ease is absolutely All That Is—there is nowhere besides Itself that It could go!
If this effortless Ease being You now were somehow multiplied a billion times over in Its simplicity and softness of being, Its wondrous richness and depth—that would barely scratch the surface of the Never Ending Ease that Your Present Self is.
This All-Embracing Ease is the “Satisfied Sigh” of Infinite Serenity.
It is the Divine Ahhh that is All—the Ahhh that never comes to an end of Itself.
