Number 1.

The more we relax as OI, the more we see clearly just how powerful the tsunami of data is. We are basically awash with all sorts of data most of the time. But instead of being a cause for concern, this is where our actual power to be of great benefit is evidenced. 

In the coincidence of afflictive data and OI is an infinite expanse of universe altering beneficial potency. It blazes so powerfully and relentlessly it's a wonder it can be contained by our simple human frames.

Reliance on the Four Mainstays of Balanced View guarantees that this super-human birthright is always directed in the most spontaneous and perfect way in all circumstances. We don't really know how that will look in any given circumstance but it is always way beyond the limitations of conventional thinking. 

The great thing is that whatever we are doing, at some point through reliance on the incredible support structures of Balanced View, we reveal that all our data is and has always been a part of the universal dance of great perfection. 

Just to reiterate, the two key points for complete well-being and flourishing in all circumstances are:

1. Rely on the Four Mainstays.
2. Go to 1.

Super Heroes

Six years ago I remember realizing for the first time that life cannot get much better than it is right now. It was a revelation to me that such a statement absolutely included all my afflictive states and "problematic" thoughts about myself and the world. And this was all due to my reliance on the Four Mainstays practice.

The mind-blowing fact about this recognition is that it has never stopped getting more wonderful and more profound. Six years from now I know that today's recognition of the glorious natural perfection of everything as it is will seem like nothing in comparison. Even though I can honestly say right at this moment "it can't get any better than this". Tee hee.

And the most crucial aspect of all of this is that it allows for the flowering of true benefit for all. It's no longer just about me. Once complete well-being is recognized to always be present no matter what is occurring in our lives, we cannot help but be motivated to contribute our innate strengths, gifts and talents towards the emancipation of humanity from the dreadful violence of data reification.

Thank you Candice, thank you Balanced View for a life of supreme purpose, joy and wonder. Together, we are creating a world full of beneficial super-heroes. One person at a time is all it takes :)
