The Clear Eye “I” at the Center of a Storm

By Dorothy Hunt

There is a dimension of our Being that is never in crisis. Even as the mind swirls amidst a pandemic, peace is present. Even as fear sweeps through, and divisions and judgments threaten to tear apart the fabric of nations, something remains unthreatened. Deep within us all, there is a clear “eye” that remains calm in the center of all phenomena. This infinite Mystery, the single “I” we share, does not judge our humanness, but embraces its ever-changing forms and energies, unable to be separated from them. To discover this dimension brings immense freedom to fully experience the moment as it is. Listening deeply to the Silence inside the storm, we begin to discover an inner wisdom that moves as love.
