Temporary Visitors

Stripped naked of your sensations, titles, and labels what remains? Are the remnants enough for you? Are you connected to that which is always constant & true? 

" We may believe that we are our anger, our pain, or our disappointment. We may be convinced that we are only our body, our wrinkles, or our successes or failures. When we get beneath all these exterior embellishments, we discover... that we are 'just the same person' in a different body. Through practice we emphatically prove that the parading sensations, and identities that we may have found so convincing are actually temporary visitors, and when we become quiet and focused enough we understand that in hosting these visitors, our house, the Self, remains unchanged." ~ Donna Farhi

" Our essential nature is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind. " ~ Patanjali
