A new year has begun, and change is underway. What better time to take a pause in the quietude, to open your ears to the emptiness inside, to the true self that lies beneath the illusions and distractions of ego, identity and appearance.
Quiet your mind and listen… Who is that innocent bystander who observes all the words and thoughts that echo inside your head? Who is that inner witness who carries no preconceptions and beholds all with equanimity?
Reach out and make yourself at home with that formless entity. Let your mind come to rest in this empty place, and let this emptiness form a doorway in the framework of your mind, opening to the pastures of infinity.
