Ride the Wave
Just noticing the arising of desire as a wave, frees us to ride the current of divine energy beneath it. Wave upon wave of desire arises. Watch. Wait. Move through life with astounding freedom.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
Our daily meditation practice makes us exquisitely aware of the many thoughts that arise and fall away in the mental field. This witness consciousness can carry over to daily activity and provide some distance from the arousal of desire on our own minds. With practice, we can recognize when these are the passing desires of restless ego, when they are not useful and let them drop away. We can also recognize the peaceful energy of enhanced intuition and follow it to guide our life to achieve our highest goals.
