The Beauty of Boundaries: Limitless Limits

Navigating Paradox on the Path

The awakening journey reveals a beautiful paradox – simultaneously limited and limitless. While our true essence is unbounded awareness, we also operate within the apparent constraints of a physical form and society. Walking this razor’s edge with grace allows us to honor both human and divine. The beauty of boundaries is that they only limit the illusion of separation, not the spirit who is free.

  • We feel restricted when clinging to limited identities and resist what is. Accepting the whole play of form and formlessness breeds freedom.
  • Though the body ages, the luminous awareness animating it remains untouched by time. Death is only a change of vehicles.
  • Equanimity and compassion flourish when we embrace temporary roles without attachment or identification.
Pema Chodron

“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.”Pema Chodron

  • Seeing through the illusion of a separate self allows us to flow gracefully with experiences as they unfold. What seemed to limit us becomes liberating.
  • Limitations remind us to surrender rigid identities and reference points based on an imaginary past or future.
  • Paradoxically, accepting seeming constraints gives rise to greater possibilities and deeper purpose.

The beauty of boundaries is that they cultivate humility, grace, and wisdom on the path to awakening. By learning to hold the tensions creatively, we discover their secret – there are no limits to the unbounded spirit we truly are.
