naming things, analyzes, dissects, and separates reality into bits and
pieces. Thinking can be a helpful practical tool, but when you identify

I am one with all life. When you know this truth, the ego dissolves.

happens, you can know yourself as the awareness behind the thinking,
the alert stillness in the background ungraspable, indefinable,
- When you disidentify
from thinking, you may also discover a growing ability within you to
perceive things and people without immediately naming them. In this

moment to be as it is? You may need to ask yourself this question many

- Instead of asking
what do I want from life?, a more powerful question is,
what does life want from me?
