“If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know he is dreaming. When you know you are dreaming, you are awake within the dream.”—Eckhart Tolle
Another friend passed away last night. He was on his motorbike and went too fast around a roundabout and was hit by a van. It didn’t sink in until this morning when I was making myself a cup of tea and I just burst out in tears. But enough of that. Back to reality.
Here are todays plans:
Donate some money to the RSPCA
Do my aunts food shopping
Complete a college assignment
Clean the house
Bathe my dog
For now I’m just going to drink some wine and look at real estate in Alaska. I hope all of my followers are well. ♥
In the Dzogchen teachings it is said that your View and your posture should be like a mountain.
Your View is the summation of your whole understanding and insight into the nature of mind, which you bring to your meditation. So your View translates into and inspires your posture, expressing the core of your being in the way you sit.
Sit, then, as if you were a mountain, with all its unshakable, steadfast majesty. A mountain is completely relaxed and at ease with itself, however strong the winds that batter it, however thick the dark clouds that swirl around its peak.
Sitting like a mountain, let your mind rise and fly and soar.
