Mira filled pages with handwritten words without even feeling tired or hungry. Flowing consciousness nurtures the soul, the mind and even the body.
“I’m surrounded by strangers but I feel at home.”
All these strangers are at peace inside. How do I know this? How do you know someone other than yourself? In the same way you know yourself. “I am you”. How do I know myself? By paying close attention to what occurs inside my mind throughout the day. Just observe, do not engage. No need to pay much attention to what is happening outside, in the space around, as this merely reflects your inner world. Observing simply, directly, immediately what occurs inside my mind shows me a rainbow of states, succeeding one another as one moment ends and another begins. Therefore, seeing the day’s timeline of moments makes impossible any “character value judgement” of a person. Moments of sadness, moments of joy, moments of confusion, moments of clarity, moments of frustration, irritation, anger, moments of kindness, compassion, inner acceptance … No one experiences only one kind of state throughout the days of his life. This living being standing here is alive therefore ever changing.
Observing is all it takes. Unbiased observation, unaltered by humanly accumulated knowledge, thoroughly cemented in memory as if carved in stone… this is the core of insanity. Strong emotions indicate “carved in stone” beliefs.
“This too shall pass.”
