Take for instance a flower in a field, the flower performs it's task, it does not wonder where it came from or where it's going, it doesn't think about the day before or the day after, 5 minutes from now it will not have thought to itself, "have I been standing here growing for five minutes. It just is and will just be. That is the state of peace we must get to. For our strength lies within our ability to deny ourselves even the most basic of needs like eating and sleeping and thinking, wondering, needing, wanting, dreaming, dreams. To deny ourselves these things is to increase our virtue.
I like that
It's like going to a peaceful center connecting your subconscious and consciousness at peace than expanding into another higher consciousness outside of yourself. People get there through many different methods, so it's really about what works for you and practice. The hard part is when you get there to be able to shift back to conscious desire!
