“Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things.” Just reading these words is following the ideas of others. It’s not that we should never read or listen to anyone else, but…
We are all of the same, but the uniqueness is beautiful. It is the same, do not confuse the issue. Your fingernail is as beautiful as your kneecap, but they are very different in appearance and composition. They are both a part of our bodies.
Be mindful of your thoughts, do not let them overwhelm you. In times of stress and anxiety, you only need to think of your breathing.
We can see ourselves clearly, and should be able to see the root of our suffering.
