This passage reminded me of how we see our "selves" and our "stuff" (the "stuff" that's in our heads). The awareness/intention is larger than the thought, emotion, action, etc. How we are is equally, if not more important, than what we do. I read this passage and thought of myself reading this passage (me as the reader, and me as the observer of the reader reading the reading). :) I'm sorry to miss coming to the gathering of inner-sights and shared reflections, esp. on a day that is regarded as Peace Day (http://peaceoneday.org/en/welcome)-- I know, it's a start as one day. It's also a day to reflect on global truce/day of disarmament, but hypocritical in that a very probably innocent man is facing execution today (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troy_Davis_case http://www.yesmagazine.org/issues/beyond-prisons/the-locked-gate-standing-up-for-my-brother-on-death-row http://www.yesmagazine.org/peace-justice/what-you-can-do-to-help-stop-the-execution-of-troy-davis http://www.amnestyusa.org/news/press-releases/amnesty-international-condemns-decision-to-deny-troy-davis-clemency-calling-it-an-outrageous-affront). May we all expand our hearts and minds to include all in love and compassion and forgiveness.
