Life felt stressful yesterday–and then I realized there was no stress in it. The day simply was filled with activity which the mind translated into “stress,” and then the the body created “feelings” about that. I well know that neither the mind nor the emotions are reliable–over the past three years this has become eminently clear.
What a release this is! And to remember that below, prior to any activity is delicious stillness. That ever-present potent emptiness is always available, even in the middle of perceived chaos.
