Nature of the Mind
The heart and the body are not separate from the mind. Just as we heal the body and heart through awareness, so we can heal the mind.
Thoughts tell us stories about our successes and failures, plan our security, habitually remind us of who and what we think we are. This dualistic nature of thought is a root of our suffering.
To heal, we must learn to step back from all the stories of the mind, for the conflict & opinions of thoughts never end.
When we see that the mind’s very nature is to think, to divide, to plan, we can release ourselves from its iron grip of separation and come to rest in the body and heart.
The mind thinks of the self as separate, the heart knows better.
A famous quote from Sri Nisargadatta: The mind creates the abyss and the heart crosses it.
