Mind’s fabrications

Mind’s fabrications bind us to samsara not because they are false, but because they trap us in a fixed and limited way of being.

When we accept the authority and legitimacy of the regime established by mind, we accept the authority and legitimacy of samsara itself. 

We uphold it with each idea we affirm, each word we pronounce, and each experience we claim as our own.
