Thoughts and consciousness are not the same thing. Thoughts arise within consciousness, not the other way around.

Eckhart Tolle Quotes Mar 27
Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.

Ultimately, suffering is an illusion. And yet, compassion dictates that we "suffer with" those under the sway of this illusion. This is like going back into a burning building to save children. It all makes sense in the end.

The Light of consciousness cannot be seen with the eyes. Rather it is the Witness of all that passes, including the eyes.

Truth, Being, and Reality are just words that represent ways to view Something that is essentially unqualified and inexpressible in language. How do you find it? Ask yourself: Is it true? Who am I? What is real? Eventually, a light dawns.

Reality is formless. Forms convince us otherwise. Meditation shows us the difference.

There is a lot of blame and avoiding responsibility these days as well. But you cannot blame anyone else for your lack of conscious awareness. It is your responsibility and no one else's. Notice: It's responsibility, not blame — i.e., no judgment required.

When the future is scary and uncertain, you can't really afford to live there anymore. So you come back to the present moment — and notice a certain aliveness there. You become happy for no reason. A Light dawns. This is it.

There's a lot of spiritual bypassing going on these days. Remember: Suffering is not a good thing, even if the awareness that results from suffering is. The key is to become aware.

Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself? — Tao Te Ching, chapter 15

Let the Light of your awareness be your guide, not your mind. Become aware of your mind (your thinking), and Consciousness will guide you.

Institutions may fail us, or maybe they will save us. But whatever is rising and falling around you, your conscious awareness is always there. It will not fail you, and no one can take it from you. Practice.

We watched this PBS documentary last night. It may be difficult viewing in some respects, but it's good to see that we have been through a pandemic before and made it. We can do this. 💪
