We must be willing to get rid of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
— Joseph Campbell
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all of our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
I find myself in a cycle of night productivity that hinders my early mornings. Everything is so quiet. The samskaras continue…
Every time I let myself get swallowed up in a pattern, intention drives me to a new awakening. What will it be this time?
“Changing your samskaras, or patterns, is not an accidental process, a formula we stumble upon without meaning to. In the struggle to create healthier samskaras, sankalpa (intention) is what mythologist Joseph Campbell termed a “call to awakening.” Sankalpa unites our mind with those deeper parts of ourselves that can be so hard to access. Conscious use of sankalpa is a compelling way of communicating what we want to our emotional and spiritual bodies.” - Daily Insight Newsletter July 19
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
