Awe Out of Nothing
There is no cup independent of the clay that it is made of. The idea of a “cup” can exist independently of clay but not the cup itself. Same with you, Mind. There is no mind independent of the body that it is made of. Except for the idea of “mind” in your mind…
This body is clay. And so is this mind. Rumi knew it. I know it. Do you?
Do you know that all that exists is stardust? Literally, not metaphorically. You are made of 14 billion year old stuff. At least! But, if you understand that nothing can emerge ex nihilo, then you know you are truly ageless, made of the universal clay that always has been and always will be…
Unborn and undying.
Mental health isn’t just about being symptom free. Mental health is about being capable of a sense of awe (however you arrive at it). Look at yourself in awe, Living Stardust that you are!
