The sanctuary and its throne

There is a sanctuary in our mind.

There is a throne in our sanctuary.

There is a name we call the throne – it’s awareness.

Find the sanctuary; find the throne; sit on it.

Observe.

The sanctuary has no ceiling. Thoughts keep visiting from above.

These thoughts are guests. You are the host.

If you entertain them, these entertained thoughts visit you more often. If you don’t attend to them, these unattended thoughts visit you less.

Entertaining is draining but easy. Ignoring is effortless but difficult.

Observe.

The sanctuary has no floor. Feelings keep visiting you from below.

These feelings are helpers and they respond to the guests.

If you have trained them well, these helpers would learn how to respond to what guest. If you have not trained them at all, these helpers follow their instinct.

Training is effortful and deliberate. Instinct is automatic and easy.

Find the sanctuary; find the throne; sit on it.

Observe how your mind works.

Once you know, you would know what to and what not to.

Awareness. Appreciation. Acceptance. Action.
