Welcome to my new blog (and my new website!).
I thought I’d start by sharing my favourite quotation:
“All we are is peace, love and wisdom and the power to create the illusion that we’re not.” ~ Jack Pransky
At first glance this seems so simple. It’s actually quite profound and so true, and we’d do well to remind ourselves of this every day. Sometimes hourly is useful!
We all have innate wisdom and peace of mind. But so often we can’t hear that wisdom or feel that peace of mind because our thinking is so loud and we treat all our thoughts as real and significant. And we live in the feeling of our thinking yet we attribute our feelings to external factors: people, situations and circumstances.
Thoughts are transient, like the clouds, and we can just observe them and not give them power by believing them to be significant. I think it was Michael Neill who said that the sky isn’t bothered by the clouds. During the times we’re not bothered by our thinking, we can know the peace, love and wisdom that is always there.
