The world between our ears - the world of I, me, and mine - is not real. It is a fabrication, a story we have spent a lifetime making up and believing.... When we are simply present with our breathing, our body sensations and feelings, and our immediate environment, the story lets go of us. We start to know ourselves as the pure, luminous awareness that sees and experiences reality here and now. This knowing may be intellectual at first, but gradually it becomes embodied.
