Inner Journey: TWO VIEWS
“… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton
Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.
Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.
Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.
“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”
— Martia Nelson

“You stay young as long as you can learn, acquire new habits and suffer contradiction.”
-Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, Aphorisms (1893)
Learn and grow. This is our theme with WisdomNews. We are here to learn and to grow. That is our purpose. And by doing so, we are becoming better people, and making the world a better place. There’s a saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Maybe it’s more like “the old dog will learn the tricks he wants to learn.” Whatever we want to learn, we can learn that. Our choice.
