No matter our causes and conditions, wellness begins as we realize that we are more than we think we are, more than our stories about ourselves.
When we are asleep to Being, our attention becomes entranced by mind—the vast array of ideas, images, beliefs, habits, and judgments we have been conditioned to identify as self,” writes the contemporary spiritual teacher Adyashanti. “However, these are not self; they are conditioned psychological processes masquerading as who you are.”
the sweet longings of a lifetime……
inquiry for today~ what sweet nothings come in the dawn?
In the visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.
~Edgar Allan Poe
