If it weren't for our minds, we wouldn't know that our minds our our main problems. It's ironic, in a way, but it's only because we can think that we see that our normal way of thinking is our biggest source of suffering. Everything we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch is painted over with deluded thoughts, ideologies, preconceptions, stereotypes, prejudices, etc. It is virtually impossible to see existence as it really is through that paint. But, the longer you sit in meditation, the easier it is to scrape that paint off and see true, unblemished, existence. I'm not who i think i am. You're not who you think you are. Life isn't what we think it is. I just am. You just are. Life just is. Be like that and you'll shout for joy each morning when you wake up just from the thrill of being alive.
