“When I was anxious, you were there for me until I realized everything was okay. When I was uncertain, even about you, you were there for me until I realized you are someone I can be certain about. I understand why you feel insecure, but I promise you, I’ll be there for you until you feel safe.”—
Scratch my back when I’m sad. Let me run my fingers through your hair. Let me be weird. Be weird with me. Travel with me. Talk to me. Pack me lunch. I’ll make you dinner. Tuck me in. Kiss me good night. Be yourself.
The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought, is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind.
