"You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life but by realizing who you are at the deepest level." - Eckhart Tolle
Our anger, pain, and our sadness is fleeting. Our bad moods are fleeting. These emotional states often have such a grip on our hearts. But they are not who we are. We are the observer, the witness, the one that notices the rollercoaster of emotions.We are along for the ride.
These emotions, they come and go like a dense fog rolling into view and limiting our visibility only to later be burned off by the warming sun. And when the fog eventually lifts as it always does, a more sparkly, clearer, and truer sky is revealed.
Our souls are not fleeting. At the core of our beings, no matter what turmoil is going on around us, we are pure magnificence. Compassionate. Genuine. Loving. Light.
Even in death our light shines like a million shooting stars showering down on the earth blanketing those we love with a glowing embrace.
We are together in this. Our hearts, our souls at the deepest level are the same. We are one.
"In the end there are three things that matter. How well we've lived. How well we've loved. How well we've learned to let go." - Jack Kornfield
We as human beings have this amazing capacity to be reborn at breakfast...everyday this is a new day, who will I be today?" - Jack Kornfield
