Thoughts–This ‘n That

Published July 30, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Sorry I’ve lost a few sources. If you know, I’ll add:

Horses go where the rider is facing. Look at where you want to go, not where you don’t want to go.

Putting people in trances is easier than keeping them out.

The Witness of the Waking State is so constant a presence in our lives that  it’s hard to stay aware of it…But it’s very important to learn to catch hold of and identify with the Witness of the Waking State because that changeless Witness is the One who makes it through the transition we call death….The detached spectator is the Witness of the Waking State. That Witness is who you actually are…Silently address yourself by your own name or he or she. It’s simple but it’s not easy…The “I”…is so full of itself and so used to starring in your show,,,,Getting that crucial distance from the emotional weather is what happens when we substitute the third-person pronoun or our own first name for that ever-captivating I.(I have a zerox page from the book on death by the author,  a Quaker widow. If anyone recognizes it please let me know.  I shouldn’t have let go of the book.).

It may be true that the unexamined life is not worth living but which is the best lens to use?
