Example text

Can you feel there is something in you that would rather be right than at peace?  only Presence can undo the past in you and thus transform your state of consciousness.  A little closer to the truth than the thought that believes you are who your birth certificate says you are, but still a thought.  If the self – ego – were truly who I am, it would be absurd to “deny” it.

FEELING THE INNER BODY Although body­identification is one of the most basic forms of ego, the good news is that it is also the one that you can most easily go beyond.  No matter what your body's appearance is on the outer level, beyond the outer form it is an intensely alive energy field.  Then incorporate other parts of the body – legs, arms, abdomen, chest, and so on – into that feeling until you are aware of the inner body as a global sense of aliveness.  This is to say, you are no longer identified with form but moving away from form­identification toward formlessness, which we may also call Being.

Words cannot get much closer to the Truth than that.  Both sides of the conflict are equally identified with their own perspective, their own “story,” that is to say, identified with thought.  Both regard themselves as victims and the “other” as evil, and because they have conceptualized and thereby dehumanized the other as the enemy, they can kill and inflict all kinds of violence on the other, even on children, without feeling their humanity and suffering. They become trapped in an insane spiral of perpetration and retribution, action and reaction.
