“The disturbing truth is that coming to the end of suffering isn’t really a personal matter at all. Coming to the end of suffering has to do with reality and truth, with what’s real as opposed to what’s not real, and valuing what’s actual instead of what’s imagined. The whole process of awakening from the dream is very profound, and for most people there’s a real difficulty and even a disturbing quality to it because it means we have to look at ourselves in the mirror. I don’t mean looking at ourselves in the mirror the way we usually do - with regret, judgment, and blame. I mean looking in the mirror in a different way, where we’re finally willing to see we are the ones who are causing our suffering, and it’s we alone who can find the way out.”

Breathing in I calm my body, breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.
