Mental Space

narcissus“On the basis of “point of view”, human beings construct space in which they confine themselves. And they live as “Narcissus” in the virtual space of mind, rather than in actual space. Narcissus does not move about but only sits staring at himself in a mirror. Like Narcissus, human beings do a great deal of living in mental space, staring at their own minds. In such a condition, it does not make any difference how much you might hike in the woods. You are still sitting in front of a mirror, experiencing spatial confinement through your own mentality.”  – Adi Da Samraj
