Choosing The Facts We Would Like To Hear
Choosing the facts we would like to hear
is the perfect example of going round in circles.
In Sanskrit, it is called ‘Samsara’, the vicious cycle of existence.
We spend our life going up and down chasing happiness,
when, in fact, we are chasing the ‘right’ conditions.
Meditation brings this to a halt and we find – and realise –
that perfect happiness has always been within.
Happiness is not in the mind or body; it is pure consciousness itself.
We are pure consciousness and, as such, have always been happy.
Happiness is a relief from suffering/discontentment/dissatisfaction.
The mind may still feel dissatisfaction, but it is consciousness that sees this.
If we choose the facts that we like to hear, we deny our true nature.
