“Looking with a mind that’s awake reveals the shimmering pulse of life. Looking with a mind full of thoughts reveals only your thoughts.”
As the soul awakens, perception shifts. We must be willing to consistently allow new ideas and perspectives into our experience. When one becomes too attached to an idea or belief, that narrowness of mindset blocks all other possibilities. Exploration and willingness are the gateways to higher levels of consciousness. Even those who have dedicated years to study, who have found grace within a turbulent world, learned to gaze upon life with love, spent time with masters or walked monasteries in silence have barely begun to scratch the surface of the realms of infinite possibility.
Open your heart and mind anew each day. When you engage with life as a platform of discovery, you create space in which a transformation can occur. Live simply. There’s no one special you need to be. In fact, when you see yourself clearly, you’ll discover that you are an evolving, multifaceted work of art, exquisitely beautiful just as you are. All of life’s wonder and mystery is simply a reflection of you.
