A King knows what love is, how to manifest it, experience it and share it.
Today I share with you a passage from the book Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa.
From a chapter on Authentic Presence, I think it encapsulates me fully.
“The birth of the Universal Monarch:
The Shambhala definition of a monarch is one who is very raw and sensitive, willing to open his or her heart to others. That is how you become a king or queen, the ruler of your world. The way to rule the universe is to expose your heart, so that others can see your heart beating, see your red flesh, and see the blood pulsating through your veins and arteries.
Ordinarily, we think of a king in the negative sense, as someone who holds himself apart from others, hiding in his palace and creating a kingdom to shield himself from the world. Here we are speaking of opening yourself to other human beings in order to promote human welfare. The monarch’s power, in the Shambhala world, comes from being very soft. It comes from opening your heart so that you share your heart with others. You have nothing to hide, no suit of armor. Your experience is naked and direct. It is even beyond naked – it is raw, uncooked.
This is the fruition of warriorship: the complete primordial realization of basic goodness. At that level, there is absolutely no doubt about basic goodness or, therefore, about yourself. When you expose your naked flesh to the universe can you say: “Should I put a second skin on? Am I too naked?” You can’t. At that point, there is no room for second thoughts. You have nothing to lose and nothing to gain. You simply expose your heart completely.”
Expose your heart today. The world could use more love.
