When the snow globe is shaken up, all the little pieces fly around and I cannot see the object at the center. My view is clouded. If I put the globe down, after a moment, the object at the center appears unobstructed.
The mind is naturally empty and luminous, which is why so many thoughts can appear, and the reason we can perceive anything at all.
But, in this world so full of agitation and stimulation coming at us from all directions, we have quite a challenge to find that place of peace that is at our core — allowing that luminous mind to shine through.
While we have these bodies, thoughts will naturally come and go. If we can allow them to do just that -without grasping or holding on- we will be well on our way to a better, more sane existence here and now, and…we will move in the direction of awakening.
Love & Light!
