The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Most of our world is mind-spin

Image may contain: text

“We see that our experience is not of what’s actually happening, but rather of the world of thought. Most of our experience is a dream-reflection in mind. We don’t experience our seeing so much as what we think about our seeing, or our hearing so much as what we think about what we’re hearing.

Most of our world is mind-spin. The power of wisdom is to wake us to the direct experience of things as they are. It dispels our drowsy blindness and allows us to live more of our life, rather than just experiencing the world from the conceptual realm where what we call reality is just a dream and a shadow of a dream.”
