Amida Buddha: Our True Nature

matthewsatori:

Amitabha Buddha is all living beings and all
living beings are Amitabha Buddha. Amitabha Buddha became
Amitabha Buddha by reciting the Buddha’s name, and if we recite
the Buddha’s name, we, too, can become Amitabha Buddha…

Considering the four Dharma Realms, and speaking from the
standpoint of our self-nature, we and Amitabha Buddha are united
in one, and therefore we have the qualifications to realize
Buddhahood…

Amitabha Buddha is contained within the hearts of all living
beings and living beings are contained within Amitabha’s heart…

As we recite “Namu-Amida-Butsu” we each create and
adorn our own Land of Ultimate Bliss. We each accomplish our
own Land of Ultimate Bliss which is certainly not hundreds of
thousands of millions of Buddhalands from here. 

Although it is far
away, it doesn’t go beyond one thought. It is not hundreds of
thousands of millions of Buddhalands from here, it is right in our
hearts. If you understand the Land of Ultimate Bliss as the original true heart, you
will be born in the Land of Ultimate Bliss. If you don’t understand your own original true heart, you will not… 

If you can empty yourself of attachments, you will immediately see
Amitabha Buddha, that is the Land of Ultimate Bliss. Amitabha
Buddha and living beings, do not discriminate between this and
that, turn the light within. Know that originally you are the Buddha,
and your original Buddhahood is just the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
