We are not asked not to be afraid
Drawing by Jaya Ashmore, all rights reserved. We are allowed to take time to rest, to meditate, to dance.
It can also be said: we have the responsibility to rest.
How much better we live when we do!
How much better the mind works; how much patience appears; how much spontaneity.
The mind doesn't own the body...it doesn't really own anything, does it?
...except, when we rest and meditate enough, the mind can perhaps do the only thing that is left to it. The mind can own itself.
