“If you couldn’t think or imagine, you couldn’t feel bad about yourself.”

“Enlightenment isn’t certainty; it’s a direct encounter with existence.”

“Whatever our idea of ourself is, it's an idea in our mind, an image. As soon as we stop thinking, it is annihilated.”

“Whenever you see the controller operating in the background, let it go.”

“Contractive movements within us get their power in direct proportion to how much we resist them.”

“Your life is a koan and how you live it is the resolution to it.”

“Every instant is an opportunity to serve.”

“We embody the dharma by lovingly taking care of our life.”

“Meaninglessness is a value judgment. It’s an interpretation.”

“Life is utilizing your consciousness to become itself conscious.”

“Don’t let your spiritual life become a fix-it project.”

“Many times a day, acknowledge what is awake now, and do not dwell on what is not." 

“Awakeness leads to more awakeness.”

“Abide in your innate sufficiency of being. Connect with others out of that.”

“If you keep caring about what people think of you, they own your well-being. The key to your well-being does not lie in the pocket of anyone else.”
