Within each of us is an inner reality that is untouched by pain or illusion,untouched by fear and confusion and that inner reality at its core is your Soul….
To attach ourselves to the outside world and all its experiences can only bring suffering in the long term and to attach ourselves to our thoughts and emotions can also only bring more suffering,usually in the short term!
So how do we traverse the overwhelming feelings,sensations and information that seem to bombard us every moment of everyday?
By practising presence in the now moment and training the mind not to go wandering off into either the past or the future. When the mind goes into the past it can cause depression and a sense of melancholy,for dreams lost and hopes unfulfilled. And when the mind ventures into the future it can create anxiety and panic, through fear of what is around the next corner. So if feeling either depression or anxiety,become a silent witness and gently bring the mind back into the present moment.
For in truth, the only place you can feel and hear the inner reality of your soul is in this eternal now moment.
Your Soul is your dearest friend and greatest guide and is filled with such love, grace and divine intelligence. So be still each day in silence and solitude,even if only for 5 minutes and you will begin to detach from the illusions of your outside world, which is based on fear and the illusion of separation and be able to come home to your inner reality of love, peace and oneness!
Make a personal vow to yourself today to love,honour and obey the deep yearnings of your Soul and then expect a miracle!
