BECOMING WHO YOU ARE

Donna Farhi

If you look at the sky what you tend to notice is the objects in it— the passing birds or changing clouds. The ordinary or habitual mind has a tendency to f ixate and follow these transient forms without noticing the unchanging and ever present canvas of the sky. When we bring our attention to rest upon this canvas, we f ind that it is still, luminous, and silent. A mind f illed with such awareness has become awakened to its true nature . . . We must learn to see the sky and to focus our attention on this unchanging background.

Donna Farhi, Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit:
A Return to Wholeness
