To arrive at the unshakeable…

More inspiration from my stops at Steve Layman‘s and Luke Storm’s blogs…

Nothing in the realm of thoughts or ideologies is absolute. Lean on one for long, and it collapses.  Because of this, there is nothing more futile and frustrating than relying on the mind. To arrive at the unshakable, you must befriend the Tao. To do this, quiet your thinking.  Stop analyzing, dividing, making distinctions between one thing and another. Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as parts of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth.
