Looking back through some posts, spotted this from Apr 4 of this year; thought I’d resurrect it for a little while. ~ W
Three Daily Practices
- Strengthen positive emotions through daily gratitude and admiration.
- Disempower negative emotions daily through forgiveness.
- Practice innocent perception; perceive the world through the eyes of a child.
The mind generates structures as reality, and then breaks them in order to fix them for a price — breaking hearts, breaking lives, breaking wills — just to gain the upper hand through some kind of glorified structure.
In such a world, dominated by the mind and its oppressive structures, the heart has become a servant of the tyrant. The heart has had to compensate for all the loveless barriers and oppressive formulas that man-generated realities had sanctioned. The powers of the heart have been locked behind a prison door, forbidden the freedom of exit. In such a world the heart is considered to be feminine, a center of awareness which serves a person’s emotional and creative needs only… a “wife” to the mind, but nothing more. This is the tragedy of our upside-down world.
