The practice allow us to “return home”, namely to tune in with something gentle and stable in ourselves. It allows us to experience a space inside of us, a space in which we literally feel good.
Often when we begin with an inner development practice, we are far from ourselves and fragmented; and this is not a metaphor, it’s the actual condition of most of the human beings: we are far from our true, intimate nature.
This condition makes us feel ill, incomplete, insecure, sad, tired… often tired even of the life we live.
But, during the practice- and I mean a real, concrete practice guided by a competent instructor- something happens, and this happens each time, sometimes with more and sometimes with less intensity.
We begin to feel the illusory more farest, and closer to something more concrete and real inside of us, inner
What happens? Our state of consciousness changes.
It’s not true that our problems vanish, this would be an out-and-out falsehood: what happens is that we begin to see our problems in a different way. Such as before the practice we are the problem and, all at once we are not more the problem, but the observers of the same. Yes, able to observe it such as we could observe a map, looking it from on high.
In the field of inner growth, practice is fundamentally exiting from our identifications and “reentering home”. The center of ourselves, who and what we really are.
