      Theory of Feelings

      I think the feelings
      are put on like layers

      of paint. Her honeymoon, for instance:
      cold water, warm kisses,

      then later, the breakup of the marriage,
      -so now she has

      the memory of pleasure
      with a thin

      skin of pain
      on top of it,

      then a light varnish
      of interpretation

      to really seal it in.

      That's how a human being is
      made, I think: one coat

      after another. Childhood was
      one bright, ferocious color.

      then two, then so many
      splashed and mingled,

      so thickened and built up
      one day it finally

      stood up on its own
      like a suit of armor,

      and began to walk, and talk,
      and went looking for itself.

      Once the blossoms are gone, the fruit becomes visible; when one fades away, the other starts growing. How could bread give strength without being broken? How could the grape give wine without being crushed?

      - Rumi, version by Muriel Maufroy from Breathing Truth - Quotations from Jalaluddin Rumi, posted to AlongTheWay




      Earnestness is not a yearning for the fruits of one's endeavors. It is an expression of an inner shift of interest away from the false, the unessential, the personal.

      So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to dis-identify with your mind. Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind the light of your consciousness grows stronger.

      - Eckhart Tolle, posted to The_Now2




      Take the first step first. All blessings come from within. Turn within. 'I am' you know. Be with it all the time you can spare, until you revert to it spontaneously. There is no simpler and easier way.
