Thoughts and Feelings (Jeff Foster)

Thoughts and feelings
do not have power over you
until you give them power
by forgetting your true nature. 
You are the ocean; they are the ever-changing waves.
You are the unfathomable sky; they are the passing clouds.
You are the uncontained container;
they are welcome guests in your infinite embrace.
Thoughts and feelings are not you, friend,
but you are vast enough to hold them,
to allow them to come and go,
arise and fall,
emerge, stay for a while, and subside into deep sleep.
You remain, awake. 
- Jeff Foster
