“An awakened perspective shows us not what we awaken to but what we awaken from.”

“The big delusion of ego is that ‘I’ am the creator of all ‘my’ thoughts." 

“Everything you define yourself as is an image. Behind that is not a better version of yourself.” 

“Notice that everything is already being the way that it is.”

“The other side of ‘will’ is ‘willingness.’”

“We can get so deeply introverted in spiritual practice that we miss the little moments.”

“Suffering is very often caused by a misalignment of perception of the moment.”

“Find what was never lost.”

“Awareness is the common denominator to all experiences, good or bad.”

“A ‘revelation’ is revealing what was already there.” 

“Nirvana is the experience of no friction.”

“The self is simply an existential clench in the gut of ‘no.’”

“Emptiness turned over is interconnectedness.”

“There’s actually no such thing as nondual language. There’s nondual ideas but there’s no nondual language.”

“When we actually perceive the ‘thus-ness’ or ‘such-ness’ of something, we are perceiving it to being nothing but interrelatedness itself.”

“Enlightenment is seeing that awareness and the objects of awareness are actually not different.”

Recorded at Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York on April 5-122019.
