Sitting here at my favourite place in nature and reading this book while the sun is shining. . .
Such kind of books work best for me when I've already come to some of its ideas through my own experience and then the book shows up, validates my experience and gives more depth and theoretical details to it.
One of the main ideas of the book is that we are not our mind. We are beyond it. Our mind is only a tool, not who we are. .
But often times we believe that we are the mind and thus giving it the power to control us and to make us suffer with all the drama it creates, all the misinterpretations of a situation and all the dangers it founds wherever it looks around. .
By making a space for silence in this moment, we can see through the illusions that our mind creates. .
When we are present in this very moment, neither the pain from the past, nor the worries for the future exist. .
Our power lies in the NOW, in surrendering to this moment. .
That's what I've got from the book until now 🌞. .
