“Your Treasure House is in yourself, it contains all you need.”
This is a message to all of us which simply states that everything we need for enlightenment is within ourselves. Everything we need to be awakened we can find by looking within, not without.
This is very straightforward wisdom which comes directly from an awakened being. We all can be awakened like a Buddha by looking within ourselves. To do this we are mindful and have the right perspective. We also meditate, we sit, and we are mindful. We are ever mindful of what we are doing at any given moment. We are mindful of our breathing of our walking, of our sitting. We are mindful when we shovel piles of snow from a blizzard, and we are mindful when we mow our lawns. When we are always mindful, we are always meditating.
When we meditate, we do not need a deep trance-like state where we float over cities or anything magical. This is not meditation. Simply sitting and being mindful of our breathing and thoughts is to be in a perfect state, which leads to enlightenment. We alone have the power to transform ourselves, our thinking, and our perspectives. We alone have the power to be compassionate to all things. We alone have the treasure house within ourselves.
