A choice

If I see myself as separate body, as a small fragile thing in a dangerous and frightening universe populated with other small frightened individuals who are out to get me I will have to compete to survive. I will have to have more, be more, consume more.

If I see myself as part of life, surrounded by life in the various apparent forms which my mind creates out of the abundant energy around it I can relax and enjoy the show. I need less, I consume less, I don’t feel afraid and can dance with those sharing the dream with me as we enjoy the incredible privilege of being here at all.

It’s a choice, and we make it over and over again. In every single moment.
