Quote for the Week

From our own innate tendencies and the repeated use of language, we have adopted the belief that the body, thoughts, and feelings are “me,” and that everything outside the body is “not me.” This fundamental sense of duality creates a split in our experience that leads us to feel disconnected from the rest of creation, with the consequent feelings of loneliness, isolation, anxiety, and longing. We are examining the belief in a self in order to see through this duality, because beyond it is the promise of much greater wholeness and connection.
