"

Meditate on the Self.
One without two,
Exalted awareness.

Give up the illusion
Of the separate self.

Within or without,
That you are this or that.

My child,
Because you think you are the body,
For a long time you have been bound.

Know you are pure awareness.

With this knowledge as your sword
Cut through your chains.

And be happy!

Played 89 times.

After long long hours of sitting at my desk or computer my body has grown increasingly dissatisfied with this routine of mine…so yoga has been happening in my life to amend the situation! Here is a little gouache painting inspired by this new part of my day!

"Contain your experience with the divine so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you. Be silent. Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion that regularly seduce us in the outside world. Silence also helps you avoid distraction. It helps focus the busy mind - the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something, the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged lest it become introspective and allow the soul’s voice to override its own. The silence I am describing is a silence that you use to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul. This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment. You carry this silence within you, even when you are with others. It allows you to hold your centre amid the chaos of your life; it keeps you clear so that you do not do or say things you will regret or make decisions out of fear."
