As we gently relax into awareness, into listening, observing, allowing everything to be as it is, the mind’s compulsive contraction into stress and anxiety fades. False beliefs that block happiness drop away. And the silence and clarity from simply being aware comes into consciousness, welcoming us to rest a moment. There is a radiance to awareness. The mind stops and peace and happiness begin to arise all by themselves. What we call spirit is actually this quality of awareness.
