Excerpt About Brain
But when we are awake to the truth we know that it is completely the other way around. We discover that we are the essence of Being and that our suffering will not stop as long as we take ourselves to be anything else. As long as we are creating duality, separating ourselves from Being, taking the surface to be what we are, we will suffer. It is as if you are saying, “I am my skin, the heart is not important, the heart is extraneous to the skin.” But the heart and the brain are actually more important than the skin. When you believe that your body is more fundamental than your essence, you are in trouble. That trouble will generate all kinds of emotional difficulties, bodily tensions, states of suffering, fear, helplessness, and deficiency.
