Your Awareness Will Set You Free

Thich Nhat Hanh states, “When I have a toothache, I discover that not having a toothache is a wonderful thing. That is peace. I had to have a toothache in order to be enlightened, to know that not having one is wonderful. My nontoothache is peace, is joy. But when I do not have a toothache, I do not seem to be very happy. Therefore to look deeply at the present moment and see that I have a nontoothache, that can make me very happy already.”

It is our awareness that sets us free!

In other words, think of it as having “Vuja De”…Vuja De: The opposite of Deja vu – the ability to see the same thing with a new perspective! The ability to see new insights into old problems.
We must find a way to become masters of perspective. Two see the story from all sides, not just the side that hurts.
“People who suffer the most from a given state of affairs are paradoxically the least likely to question, challenge, reject, or change it.” – Micheal Housman
Question. Observe. Come form a place of not knowing. Reexamine. Harness your awareness and set yourself free.
