Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go. – Mooji
A student went to see his meditation teacher and said, “My situation is unbearable! I feel so distracted most of the time, my legs ache, my body is in pain and I cannot sit still. I can’t go on.”
The teacher replied matter-of-factly, “That’s okay. It will pass.”
A week later, the student returned to his teacher. “My meditation is wonderful! I feel so ecstatically joyous and alive! Now I understand everything!”
The teacher told him: “That’s okay. It will pass.”
Every transient experience we have in life will pass easily if we do not attach a feeling, story, or belief about it. We only suffer when we allow the mind to hold onto that which is always moving, like clouds in the sky.
