We are all miserably and hopelessly addicted. This itch that mankind has… just can’t be scratched. So we’ll chase ever fulfilling experiences… always chasing… always trying to scratch an itch. Seeking pleasure? When are are lonely, we seek companionship. When are are in despair, we seek hope. In ever moment we are slaves to our desires. The wounding caused by these desires is intimate and painful. How does one soothe the soul when one the body is a slave to desire?
The soothing balm is Observation. Pure and simple. You no longer need to scratch that itch. It goes away. Just observe. Yourself. Your mind. Your body. Your thoughts. Your beliefs. Everything you are. Everything around you. Take in everything but not through the channels of sense perception. Let the inner consciousness teach you. Whatever it may teach you. There are no answers. What a consciousness experiences in the current moment is the only reality.
