#696a

January 28, 2013

It is time to spend another 24 hours noticing the mind, again with pen and paper handy.

Without the mind, all is calm and easy. Life flows naturally from its source of isness. But when the mind speaks with its worries and judgments, and those worries and judgments are seen as valid, life becomes tense and strained.

For the next 24 hours, make note of thoughts that come from mind and add a ripple to the calm sea of being.

  1. “O mind, when you cease to be, all the good and noble qualities blossom. There is peace and purity of heart. People do not fall into doubt and error. There is friendship which promotes the happiness of all. Worries and anxieties dry up. When the darkness of ignorance is dispelled, the inner light shines brightly. Mental distraction and distress cease, just as when the wind ceases to agitate its surface, the ocean becomes calm. There arises Self-knowledge within and the realization of truth puts an end to the perception of the world-illusion: the infinite consciousness alone shines. There is an experience of bliss.”

    ~ The Supreme Yoga: Yoga Vasistha
