The bedazzlement of existence

"We do not need to ritualise the universe with nihilistic pretences. All we need to do is gaze tenderly at the living bedazzlement of existence. We could just simply gaze at whatever arises and enjoy the immense vision. We would then realise that celebration is taking place without remission in the vastness of inner and outer space."
