Year 2, Week 41 | Oh Me, Oh Mind
Honestly the more I learn about the power of the human mind, the more I realize we are all just making sh*t up. Like money is just dirty paper and we pretend it to have meaning - there are no such things as countries, it’s just land. You honestly and utterly create your own reality.
For me in meditation it’s easy to find that everything is actually nothing, but when I am wakeful my mind flips to make even nothing absolutely everything. Which mind am I supposed to inhabit?? There are perils and beauty in each no(?)
“The world is nothing in itself. Your mind must give it meaning. And what you behold in the world are your wishes. To know yourself is the salvation of the world. You maintain the world within your mind in thoughts, to free the world from every kind of pain is but to change your mind about yourself” (A Course in Miracles).
