Stories we tell ourselves are mostly untrue

the stories are mostly untrue

It is a great relief to discover that our stories do not fully define who we are, or what is happening to us. With mindfulness we can step out of the story we tell and simply notice the telling of it. We become the witnessing, the space of awareness. When we do this we rest in what Ajahn Chah calls the One Who Knows. With a quiet mind, the One Who Knows sees how we construct our world through repeating our stories. And we discover the stories are mostly untrue. – Jack Kornfield
