Every time music makes you feel your truer self, you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time you smile, you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time you do something for someone else without thought of reward, you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time you gaze in awe at a sunset, a night sky, a hummingbird or a baby, you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time you change from anger to compassion, you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time you shed a tear you are momentarily not your mind.
Every time a beautiful piece of artwork stops you in your tracks, you are momentarily not your mind.

Now, with practice, people can string together these moments into days and remain in a feeling state, and then, they don't need anyone to tell them that it is not their mind. They can feel something far greater, far deeper, far safer, more eternal. That feeling is the connection with everyone and everything. The mind knows nothing of it. :)

Listen to the silence.

Heidi-
Back at you! It's nice to finally solve the "happy whatever" puzzle, and not doubt the future.

Happy tuesday! Happy lunch! Happy oil change!

The events really do become interchangeable. But the peace remains.
:wink:

If you can be aware of the thoughts in your mind then you cannot be the thoughts. You are the awareness.
