In The Power of Now , Eckhart Tolle writes, “The study of madness isn’t enough to create sanity.” To the contrary, looking at madness moves one even more deeply into madness. By taking dysfunction seriously, you make it real.
He continues, “The mind, itself, is not dysfunctional. It is a wonderful tool. Dysfunction sets in when you seek yourself in it and mistake it for who you are.”
Who you are, of course, is the silent observer of your mind. You are the consciousness beyond the words, thoughts and form. Becoming aware of your real identity and learning to live from the perspective of consciousness is the path toward healing, health, happiness, meaning, truth, love, joy, peace, I can continue…but these are just words. What you want is to feel good, so look beyond the mind and you will find it. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
