Many sensations may be noted as awareness deepens. When we get messages from the body, we just listen to them. It’s best not to move about, noticing the urge to move, the urge to escape discomfort; allow the body to just sit. The stiller the body, the stiller the mind. When we’re tending to sensation, either with each breath or as feelings in the body, we’re not at the level where words are produced. We’re breaking the internal dialogue, the constant comment of mind, breaking through that place where thinking occurs and directly experiencing the process. It is this kind of direct experience which opens the intuition and insight of the wisdom mind, which brings the mind face to face with itself. ~Stephen Levine
our own experience allows all that we know to come alive, to heal, to surrender, to trust…..find the silence that whispers long and deep and slow……then we shift into our animal body, an emergence from within….
We must assume our existence as broadly as we in any way can; everything, even the unheard of, must be possible in it. This is at bottom the only courage that is demanded of us: to have courage for the most strange, the most inexplicable. ~Rilke
What is required of you is not perfection but completeness.
