the ultimate surety

184

What is the only thing I know for sure?  What is the ultimate surety?  The word surety has its roots in the Latin securitat-, securitas, meaning security.  But strangely enough the ultimate surety – that which never changes and is never not-here – has nothing to do with security in the worldly sense.

The surety of the sages is radical insecurity.
The surety one is embodied within is choiceless ceaseless change.
The surety of Life is movement, flow, Tao.

The pleasure of surety is its unalterable thusness-
nothing to fix!

the leisure of surety is the hereness of all thusness-
nowhere to go!

and the treasure of surety is that all thusness exists Now-
nothing to lose!
