When you recognize that there is a voice in your head that pretends to be you and never stops speaking, you are awakening out of your unconscious identification with the stream of thinking. When you notice that voice, you realize that who you are is not the voice – the thinker – but the one who is aware of it. Knowing yourself as the awareness behind the voice is freedom.

-- Eckhart Tolle (via ashramof1)

"Children are given McNuggets or fish fingers to eat, which don’t look like animals at all. The children are trained to disassociate. They eat in a kind of trance of denial. And, when one day the veil drops, and they become aware, for the first time, of what they are actually eating, they have been known to react with the same horror we reserve for cannibalism. After all, being carnivorous is just cannibalism extended to another species.

"What should we call something we deliberately choose not to know about? And what do we call it when an entire society takes this path?" -

As water falls from a lotus leaf

so sorrow drops from those

who are free of toxic craving.

— Dhammapada 336

"The sorrows of life can convince us they are really important. They seem to demand a huge amount of attention. However, the Buddha teaches us that the most important things are mindfulness and wise reflection. If mindfulness practice is mature, we will be able to observe suffering when it arises without becoming too fascinated by it. We will also be able to reflect wisely on the reality of the moods we have, not just be sensitive to them. They are not ultimate — they come and go. And there is a cause for their arising. Once this cause is recognized, the Buddha says, suffering simply falls away."

— Ajahn Munindo

Letting go requires the bravery of jumping into an abyss. We don’t know what can happen, but intuitively we know there is nothing to lose. In fact we never fall, we fly, we glide we become weightless.
But this takes time and determination.
