“Countless people are devastated when they lose their jobs, when their children grow up and leave home, when a beloved spouse dies. Their sense of “I” is so bound up in names, labels and roles that they haven’t made time to find out who they really are.
Being fully human makes us real. Reality can’t be defined, it can only be experienced. Be alert to those brief moments during the day when you experience your fundamental self behind a breath, a feeling, a sensation. Before you jump out of bed tomorrow, see if you can catch the fleeting hint of being, pure and simple, before the mind starts chattering. This still, silent, nameless state is very satisfying. It cannot be touched by thinking, talking, or doing. It’s the castle whose walls no army will ever scale, guarding the treasure house where the real riches of life are stored.”
Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”
