"The mind is very manipulative.
Other's people's mind's are very manipulative.
Both are constantly trying to suck you
into a reality that is only made of thoughts.
Beyond the thought, where is that reality
that people are so personally invested in?
But to just try and remain a witness
to the thinking process is very difficult.
That also becomes another concept:
trying to be a witness of it all,
trying to be perfect enough in awareness
that one day you will find peace.
That also can suck you into unhappiness.
That is why if you are lucky enough
to find unconditional peace, silence, bliss, love,
even if it is just a taste,
take refuge in it.
Fall in love with it.
When your attention lovingly takes refuge
in that peace that transcends all thought,
then that becomes a sanctuary;
an oasis where you are truly happy.
Meditation naturally deepens
just by enjoying this peace.
Everything will come to try and pull you out;
pull you back into the insanity of concepts.
And you will slip up.
You will get caught in your own or other people's drama.
But if you truly love this peace,
you will automatically come back to it.
The dog may wander here and there
but he always comes home.
And this peace will be your home.
It will become more real to you than
any thought, emotion or physical manifestation.
You will begin to feel everything as this peace.
And it is not that you have to sit
in some far off cave to be in this peace.
As long as your attention is in peace
you can go wherever you want within reason.
You might start to prefer being
in nature or alone more often
to the noise and drama of being around people.
But you still can feel this peace anywhere.
