“ Let your long-term goal be for the life within you - not for your thoughts, not for your emotions, not for society. If your goals based on the life within you, it will be good for everyone, because everyone is just a life. ”
Because you attach so much value to your own thought and your emotion, you cannot see life the way it is
The most important thing that's happening to you right now is life itself, not the fancy thoughts you have, not the emotions you have, not financial arrangements, nor family or whatever rubbish you have built around you- these are accessories to life, these are all frills. Frills are so much you're missing the skirt, that's the whole problem with you
For most people life means their job, life means the new house, the car that they bought, their wife, their husband, their children. No! Life is what's throbbing within, not even your body, not your mind, not your thought, not your emotion. What is right now throbbing within you is life. Only because this is ON everything else seems to be meaningful
A thought cannot know life. An emotion cannot know life. An ego cannot know life. Only life can know life. If you stop being a bundle of thoughts, opinions and emotions, and just exist here as life - just throbbing pulsating life - knowing life is just natural.
We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.
