Yoga Sutra 1.8

1.8 Misunderstanding comes from illusion.

Isn’t that the truth. The definition of illusion is something that deceives by producing false or misleading impressions of reality. The way our ego’s tend to work is by telling us illusions are real. The practice of meditation frees the bonds that tie us to illusion. Identification with misunderstanding, a natural state of the mind, leads to deeper confusion.

Today I will pause before believing anything my mind tells me. I will adopt “pause” as my mantra for the day.
