Reading this beautiful essay today, I took a deep, long, relaxing breath and just let it out slowly. I read these words over and over and they have become a new talisman to me, a great truth in simple words: "..three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect." â¡.
"Can you share an experience when the honest witness deep inside you tingled?" Yesterday in a conversation with my mom, I was telling her what I believed was happening in a place I had never visited. Yet based on listening, reading and watching, I came to a truth. Actually, it felt more like I was gifted with a truth. As I spoke, I felt "honest witness deep inside" agreed -- I felt a Presence, a chilling/warming, all-encompassing "yes, this is true" confirmation. I don't usually feel that Presence unless I'm meditating. It was startling and really awe-some to feel it while speaking from my heart.
I was recently given a beautiful truth during meditation that resonates with this: "Explore the nuances of silence." Facing now one of the worst things a parent must face, a missing child, I have been unable to meditate. I have been doing everything possible to find him, filling my days with "doing." Thank you for this gentle reminder to take time be still again, to breathe out as well as in.
This is absolutely true and so beautiful. Thank you.
Wow I love this. Thank you! ♥.
There is so much Truth here. It's a bit hard to get my brain around it. I only came to a glimpse of this Truth recently. I spotted Ego, the storyteller in my head. Ego spins nightmares and beautiful fantasies equally well. I began to feel free when I told Ego to be quiet, and called it a liar. My sacred self (connected with Source and with your sacred self) is where I go to find the Truth, now. I still forget, but not as often. This concept of attachment will take practice. Thank you for this beautiful article.
