“What does your direct experience tell you about seeking a person or a place in the future? The very act of doing so means that you choose to tell yourself that things are not okay right now. This creates an inner conflict with yourself as you resist reality. It is like saying to the present moment “I WANT this," and reality replies “Okay, you WANT this.” And, once more, nothing changes. There you are, wanting, resisting, and challenging the essence of life that is unfolding in front of you.”
“You have a truth inside of you which never changes. It is the essence of who you are. The mind resists this, precipitated by sometimes even the most subtle forms of fear which are engrained in your biological makeup over generations, and your life history. Science shows that along with man, consciousness is evolving. Through mindful awareness, we have more choice and flexibility in what we do with our attention. This means that there is always an opportunity to better the world we share.”
“When reacting with even the most subtle of mannerisms, in a way that does not represent ourselves as the greater intelligence of who we are, we become a slave to our thoughts and succumb to our feelings. In effect, we simply fall unconscious to a pattern of conditioned reflexes. And so, blinded again, we lose sight to the magnificence of what will always lie waiting within us.”
