What would your life be like if you turned down all the noise? And by noise I mean, all the inner chatter your brain pumps out on a daily basis (because that's just what brains do). You don't have to believe everything you think.
Do you believe we are all good? All bad? What do you believe?
I read an article today, called How To Live A Genuine Life. I wish everyone could read this just once.
My Zen teacher asked me if I would consider teaching Beginner's meditation instruction. I didn't hesitate. I said, I would be honored and delighted.
And then I jokingly asked, Does this mean I am elightened now?
He raised an eyebrow and smiled. You know we're all enlightened, right? We just forget sometimes.
I forget a lot.
