How Big Is Your Ball? (Consciousness, Happiness)

Posted on May 23rd, by Albert in Consciousness, Happiness. No Comments

“If you have a golf-ball-sized consciousness, when you read a book, you’ll have a golf-ball-sized understanding; when you look out a window, a golf-ball-sized awareness; when you wake up in the morning, a golf-ball-sized wakefulness; and as you go about your day, a golf-ball-sized inner happiness.

But if you can expand that consciousness, make it grow, then when you read that book, you’ll have more understanding; when you look out, more awareness; when you wake up, more wakefulness; and as you go about your day, more inner happiness.

You can catch ideas at a deeper level, and creativity really flows. It makes life more like a fantastic game.” – David Lynch

So how do you expand it?

“Through meditation one realizes the unbound.

That which is unbounded is happy.

There is no happiness in the small.
