Chattering Mind

“WE are the saviors. We are the help. We are the hands and ears and eyes of heaven and earth. Evolution is happening through us, not to us. We are like the leaves on the maple tree outside my window. Some of us are green. Some have changed to yellow, and some have evolved to red. But unlike the leaves, we can evolve ourselves forward through conscious action and discipline. We can move beyond powerlessness, transform suffering, create new neural pathways, new ways of being. This, too, is in our hands. And we can take it on or not.”
