I’ve been returning a lot lately to the great well of wisdom that is Hindu scripture. It’s something I do when I’m going through rough times or just not quite feeling like myself. To return to these books is a reminder to focus once more on the true self, which is beyond all race, physical sex, gender, sexual orientation, creed or whatever other aspect of the body and mind. All of which may be real and relevant in this world but are not the essence, the soul which is simple, unadulterated consciousness.
To return to just Being is to find freedom and peace of mind.
