"Continually swimming in an endless sea of sensation can at times be exhausting, regardless if it's beautifully terrible or terribly beautiful; and this is why your deep rooted need for peace and self-care is essential for support of your superb sensitivity." ~Unknown ..*
"The mind produces thoughts ceaselessly, even when you do not look at them. When you know what is going on in your mind, you call it consciousness. This is your waking state - your consciousness shifts from sensation to sensation, from perception to perception, from idea to idea, in endless succession. Then comes awareness, the direct insight into the whole of consciousness, the totality of the mind." ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
In middle school, I received my first electric guitar, but through the years, I have switched to playing an acoustic guitar. Playing guitar has an Apparently Purposeless quality of play to me. I play because I enjoy creating new sounds and songs. Which ties into my Artist/Creator play personality. Making music for myself and others to enjoy.
