"Finding your true self is an act of love."
"Expressing it is an act of rebellion."
A quick shout on this Valentine’s Day to share a bit of wisdom from Cory Muscara, who posted a tweet thread a few months ago. A former monk and current author, he had taken a deep dive into a sincere, austere meditation practice. What resulted was some powerful insights….
The title of this post is the first dank piece of wisdom, and the thread contains 35 more that are profound and challenging and worth a deeper investigation. Some of my current favorites that I am putting in my current gazofilacio:
Sometimes we need to get out of alignment with the rest of the world to get back into alignment with ourselves.
The biggest life hack is to become your own best friend. Everything is easier when you do.
The belief that there is some future moment more worth our presence than the one we’re in right now is why we miss our lives.
A sign of growth is having more tolerance for discomfort. But it’s also having less tolerance for bullshit.
The moment before letting go is often when we grip the hardest.
Monks love to fart while they meditate. The wisdom of letting go expresses itself in many forms.
That’s all for now. Check out the full thread here.
Thanks for your patience as I got out of alignment with The Pocket for a few weeks. I’m back in alignment and drafting posts soon to come.
