On finding solid ground
With everything so evidently in the throes of transition, it’s essential for clarity and overall sanity to find solid ground. However, though the tendency is to seek this in externals: other people, traditions, familiar places or activities etc, the only reliable source of stability lies at the core of your own being.
The background presence informing this entire moving picture show and informing you is the only constant in existence.
It remains unchanging while absolutely everything else (everything manifest) is in motion, hence changing.
The way is to let go of muscular stress, stop holding the breath, sink back into yourself, stop grasping at excitement or anxiety, stop grasping at externals altogether and allow yourself to feel the inner silence, stillness and power just for a moment. But do it often. Gradually, after you’ve dropped in a few times, you start naturally defaulting to that and once that happens, you stop getting dizzied by the changes and are far more able to maintain perspective.
Solid ground for you.
