Our limiting thoughts are just a creation

 

Whatever assumptions you have about yourself, no matter how reasonable they might be, they are still a creation in the present. By believing in them, by thinking and holding to them, you’re continually creating yourself as a personality.

Awakeness is not a creation.

It’s the immanent act of attention in the present.
