What Lies Beneath

In a culture that’s always pushing more, that says more, bigger, faster is better—what is enough?

It’s no wonder that so many of us doubt ourselves, doubt the core of who we are. Everything’s for sale. Looks matter. But the surface is a mirage. And we all know it.

What’s inside? That’s what matters. We are challenged over and over again to see this. It’s blurred in the non-stop motion of our days. Brushed aside. Ignored.

It takes stillness to truly see—and to truly hear. Stillness to see into the depths below the choppy surface. Stillness to hear beyond the noise.

Who we are at our core shines. We are all children always. Our hearts tender, yearning to be loved. All this stuff floating on the surface, the social media, the selfies, the “look at me”—none of it is real.

We are all, each of us, OK.

If you want to explore this more deeply, I recommend “Radical Acceptance” by Tara Brach.
