These days there are really only 2 truths that guide me in navigating life.
And in abiding these 2 core guiding principles, life is so much more graceful, beautiful and alive than I’ve ever known it before.
1) I am not this conditioned and habituated ego (mind constructed self) that reacts, mostly from a sense of fear or a belief in lack. I am not the restless mind that is constantly trying to GET what it thinks it lacks, trying to AVOID what it thinks can destroy it, or trying to CLING to what it likes.
2) The truth of my Being is that I am the eternal, infinite and unchanging AWARENESS within which all that is temporary comes and goes, arises and passes, is born and dies. Thoughts come and go. Beliefs come and go. Conditions come and go. Emotions come and go. All form comes and goes. EVERYTHING is passing within, and perceived by, the unchanging Awareness of Being.
That’s it. End of story.
I really don’t see much that these truths don’t address.
