How often have you experienced your mind attacking you and making your life a living hell?
The most painful place you can live is inside the story that your ego and mind have created about you over time. For most people that story is one of suffering and the exact opposite of your true nature as the silent Presence.
Release from your story comes about when you move into the present moment. This shift takes you out of the world of illusion created by the ego's addiction to the past and future.
