Being one with your yidam
There are awakened forces out there who we call Buddhas that are fully free of ignorance and all that comes as part and parcel of ignorance. Who are in touch with themselves and see directly all phenomena as they really are. Hence nothing in existence is unseen to them. Who have eliminated all kleshas/delusions/illusions. Who are free from the fetters of all karma and its results. These Buddhas show us our potential and our Buddha nature and give us paths to lead to this awakening. We need to let go of fear, wrong view, and wrong projections due to lack of knowledge. With study, knowledge and application, our fears do dissipate. Once we do this, engage and accept the lineal blessings of an initiation and go head on fully with a practice of a Yidam-Buddha and we can become fully awakened.
The Buddha has shown us how in the tantric set of teachings He taught that this can be accomplished. To surrender everything is to gain something higher and more. So in the end our loss is perceived only. For in reality to lose everything is just the fear and avoidance of eventually losing it in the end anyways. All is lost in the end. Having to lose everything in the end, means we actually had nothing. Having something has to denote some sort of permanence. When it is not permanent, how can we actually ‘have’ something? We don’t. So holding on makes no sense.
Take on a practice, make no excuses and practice all the way. Become one with yourself, your inner Buddha relying on the outer Yidam-Buddha at first and then become awakened. With that light of awakening, rest not in the bliss and freedom of Nirvana but go out and benefit others. All Yogis and Yoginis of the past have done this and all of us can follow the same direction without fear or doubt. Just go all the way here and now and be consistent!
