“If we finally get over the idea of enlightenment as a cosmic finish line, then we don’t have incompleteness.”

“We don’t become Buddhas; we are Buddhas.”

“If we don’t enter into aloneness, we don’t connect. Through aloneness comes connection.”

“The ground of being is using our consciousness to make itself conscious.”

“So much of our narrative is like a dream in the night.”

“If you want to have the consistent experience of failure, try to become an ideal human being.”

“You don’t have to wait to have an awakening to embody what’s already most meaningful to you to embody.” 

“The most immediate doorway into your depth is to just become aware of the silence inside.”

“Silence is the pre-condition of every moment.”

“To the extent that we are deeply connected with the unique form in which life expresses through us, we find meaning.”

“We contain both good and evil. When these extremes become conscious, they conjoin into a whole.”
