In our society thinking is held in high regard but do we realize that our thoughts constantly keep us one step behind reality? The thinking mind maintains the illusion of the thinker, thus keeping us tethered to our idea of the self. Let go of thought and experience reality wholeheartedly. This is the path to ultimate liberation.
