Sitting quietly…

Sitting quietly, doing nothing, not knowing what is next and not concerned with what was or what may be next, a new mind is operating that is not connected with the conditioned past and yet perceives and understands the whole mechanism of conditioning. It is the unmasking of the self that is nothing but masks—images, memories of past experiences, fears, hopes, and the ceaseless demand to be something or become somebody. – Toni Packer, “Unmasking the Self”

 

*We all have felt the demand to be somebody or something even if we did not realize it was conditioning at the time. Realizing this is a step on the path.* ~ Debra

The way we….

The way we define and delimit the self is arbitrary. We can place it between our ears and have it looking out from our eyes, or we can widen it to include the air we breathe, or at other moments we can cast its boundaries farther to include the oxygen-giving trees and plankton, our external lungs, and beyond them the web of life in which they are sustained.  ~  Joanna Macy, “Positive Disintegration”
