Like children, we are innocent in touching upon our essential nature. We don’t need a Buddha to remind us of what we are in truth. In so many ways, nature supports our remembering what may have been forgotten. We are innocent, we are pure, we are beautiful, and we are strong. We are resilient even amidst life’s hardships. We are One with all creation, and remembering this truth is always available to us. Whether it is a buddha, a saint, a beloved pet, your neighbor, or a tree, anything and everything is a mirror of your own inherent beauty. Look deep into your own heart, there you will find what you are longing for.
