O Heart, Rest In Stillness


Those who are confused tell us to annihilate the 'I.' But this only devastates the effulgence of delight. It is not I who dissolve but the sense of do-ership, the illusory link between the I and action, Purusha and Prakriti.

When the thought that 'I am the do-er' vanishes, I remain as the Wonderfull Witness, while action dances on, 1000 times more dynamic, spontaneous, and innocent.

This is not an esoteric meditation: it is the experience of the warrior in the midst of battle, the athlete at the peak of performance, the lover in the zone of what she loves.

O heart, rest in stillness at the center of whirling!
