Today’s Truth : Revelations
Updated: Nov 19
The light of a calm mind awakens our inner awareness. This is not always easy in an outer world filled with chaos and destruction. But in creating this sanctuary within — and this can be challenging, day in and day out — we can but try. Never give up, but don’t be hard on yourself for being emotionally affected by the day. Get up, shed a tear, dust down your clothes and keep the faith — try again.

What Lies Within
When meditation deepened and insight awakened further, many western meditators found not only profound peace but also often accessed other not so comfortable places of the psyche such as old wounds of ‘unworthiness and self-criticism, shame and self-hatred’.
This often came from a history of trauma, rejection and coldness from loved ones, leading to a deep sense of unworthiness and not being lovable.
Jack Kornfield, Buddhist teacher, purportedly discussed this with the Dalai Lama who needed some intensive translation to understand the concept of ‘self-hatred’, and responded, saying:
“But that’s a mistake. Every being is precious!”
