The most important thing that’s happening to you right now is life itself, not the fancy thoughts you have, not the emotions you have, not financial arrangements, nor family or whatever rubbish you have built around you- these are accessories to life, these are all frills.

For most people life means their job, life means the new house, the car that they bought, their wife, their husband, their children. No! Life is what’s throbbing within, not even your body, not your mind, not your thought, not your emotion. What is right now throbbing within you is life. Only because this is ON everything else seems to be meaningfulExpand ⇕

The life within you is not there to serve your body, mind or emotion . The body, mind and emotion are there to serve lifeExpand ⇕
