Have you tried relaxing just for a moment and leaving everything just as it is? This means simply pausing for an instant and recognising the natural clarity that is always already present and not only obsessively focusing on all the descriptions about what is going on. Each and every single time you do this the relief is immediate as you see that the things that you were so wrapped up in and concerned about are no longer quite as compelling as you thought they were. There is an ease and perspective that allows you to deal very practically with whatever needs to be addressed. Just repeat this relaxed recognition whenever you naturally remember and see how you become more capable and effective at whatever you are doing.

To take responsibility for recognising each point of view as an appearance of clarity is to take responsibility for your own well-being. Once we have the perspective that recognition of the inseparability of all experience from the basic state brings then we are never really fooled by any fleeting appearance again. The tension of trying to constantly rearrange life in to the particular set of circumstances that we think will make us happy relaxes and we can truly be at ease with ourselves and others.

There is nothing that needs to be worked at or understood for us to be able to recognise the natural presence of clarity. There is nothing that needs to be undone, resolved, fixed, healed or unblocked for the brilliance of clarity to be immediately obvious. There is no behaviour, thought, emotion, fear, doubt or concern that is anything other than evidence of your fundamentally pure wide-open being. Just relax and take a short moment to get to know yourself as you really are, brilliant clarity.

The already unified nature of all phenomena is obvious when we jut relax for a moment and allow everything to be just as it is. This means that we just relax the obsessive compulsion to make something out of what is appearing and recognise the basic state that underpins all experience. In this way we become certain in our own experience as to the pristine nature of our own innate clarity.

Always-on clarity is what is essential and primary in every experience. It is your innate clarity that lights up every perception from within. It is always-on because no experience is a sign of anything other than the brilliance of clarity. Relax for a short moment and simply acknowledge what is already the case.

The sun is always shining. When it's cloudy and grey the sun is shining. In the middle of the night the sun is still shining. No matter where you go, no matter what you are doing, the brilliance of clarity is always shining brightly. Just take a short moment to recognise this and see what happens....

From the naturally balanced view of innate clarity there is a wonderful openness in all relating. When we are grounded in the clarity that is the essence of every perception then there is no need to look to other people to provide us with well-being, we can actually be in relationship without expectation. When our relating is open and relaxed there is real warmth and clear understanding of what we can bring to that relationship, how we can support others in being comfortable with the unpredictable flow of experience.

When you relax and recognise the already open nature of perception then you see how fundamentally uncomplicated life is. All the stories we tell ourselves about something being amiss or something being a sign that we are flawed and need to change are instantaneously shone through with the bright light of clarity. From this relaxed space we are so much more capable of dealing with whatever life throws at us. We are able to respond with genuine warmth and incredible sensitivity in all situations. We are free of the need to pick everything apart in the search for understanding as from this vantage we recognise the unified nature of all experience.

Right now you have a choice. You can be lost in a world of descriptions, labels and concepts or you can relax and recognise the clarity that is the essence of this moment. It is that simple. When you make that choice everything is seen clearly for exactly what it is, the actual nature of your experience instinctively recognised. It is the same choice in every moment and as we make this choice more often we gain confidence in the inseparable nature of whatever is appearing from the clarity of awareness. The missing piece of the puzzle is found and without anything needing to change we decisively recognise what is most fundamental.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, clarity is present. It is only due to your innate clarity that you are able to experience anything. By simply acknowledging this basic knowledge you are guaranteed to experience increasing ease in all situations as you are no longer fooled as to the nature of perception. Each time you acknowledge this basic state you see how nothing has an independent nature separate or apart from this ground of being. This is the keenest insight into the nature of experience that you can ever have and leads to a life that is of immediate and long lasting benefit.

By relying on the perfect intelligence of clarity we see that there is no need to hold to any conventional frames of reference. Instead there is an amazing responsiveness and ability to innovate in all spheres of human activity. This innovation spans the challenges of normal everyday life right up to the grandest theories of the nature of reality. This clarity of seeing is revealed in a short moment of relaxing and allowing all of the descriptions of what is going on to be exactly as they are.

The benefit of gaining confidence in clarity is a complete mental and emotional stability, where you are no longer a victim of the unpredictable flow of experience. You become grounded in the openness that is the basis of all perceptions and the sensitivity and compassion that are synonymous with it. With the relaxing of the struggle of obsessive focus on the construct of a personal identity you unlock a vast reserve of energy that is immediately available to be of benefit to yourself and others. Clarity is the ability to respond with warmth and incredible intelligence in every situation, this is true wisdom.

When you relax you are more effective. This is the case whether you are playing sport or dealing with a technical challenge on the computer, speaking to a colleague at work or making plans for the future. The basic state of your experience is always relaxed and wide-open and this is what we gain confidence in every time we take a short moment to recognise that this is so.

From the vantage of brilliant clarity even going to the local supermarket is a wonder. There really is nothing that is excluded from the all-encompassing embrace of innate clarity. No person, place, thing or activity that is not naturally illuminated with the pure light of wide-open clarity. Hooray for shopping!
