Existence simply is. It didn’t require religion to come to be. It doesn’t require being right, devotional, or philosophical to continue. It cannot be any less or more than it already is. It simply wants to be realized. It wants its Truth, which is not separable from your Truth, to be known.
Religion, devotion and even philosophy are paths or methods one can use to reach the Truth but they are not Truth itself. They can guide one towards realization and conversely they can lead far away from it. To realize Truth, one needs to be supple-hearted and quiet-minded. If one is overly-attached to any religion, devotion, or philosophy then one becomes too rigid or single-minded in the fervor of trying to “get it right” and there is no room for Truth to enter.
Truth is not a blaring of trumpets or blinding lights. It can’t be bought or earned. It can only be realized. Truth is as silent and subtle as a falling feather spiraling slowly towards a pond. It kisses the surface almost imperceptibly as it lights. In that instant there is the slightest perfect disturbance in rippling circles to let the water know it’s there. The water accepts it completely and moves with it as it will.
Don’t be surprised when you reach Truth to find there are no words. There are no sky rockets or flags to wave. There is only a perfect rippling in the moment to let you know it’s there and it will move you as it will.
“I said to my soul, be still, and wait…So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”
