“When we quiet the mind, we can choose to be open to what really is without instantaneously categorizing it and filling in the picture from a subconscious place. This is when the miracle happens, and we are present to experience it fully. The incessant, insane drive to be constantly distracted is ultimately based in the fear of cessation of our mere existence. Ironically, this is the very thing that keeps us dead. Hence, the saying by the Tibetan Buddhist: “Die before you die that you may truly live.” The enlightened one sees things as they are and accepts being in the moment unconditionally.”
Daniel Ryan, in “Healing from Heaven”
