Everything in our external world, and even our thoughts change us constantly and are impermanent. But that there's a part of us that we call, like, the true self, right. That's not impacted by what we see in the mirror, external events or even thoughts. We start to learn how to separate from those things and sort of tap into this. Sometimes we call it the soul. Sometimes we call it the true self. For some people, it's a connection with the divine, but that's the only thing that is unchanging. And also in terms of just being in your body, too is being a feeling of being grounded. That's a big part of it, like feeling your feet, the ground. The more we can move away and down from the mind and the thoughts and into the feeling of being in our body and feeling grounded.
