“Spirituality begins with ‘What is here’ rather than endlessly seeking ‘What is not here.’”

 “It takes trust to let go of constantly trying to manipulate the content of experience.” 

“Awakening always involves a fundamental shift of identity.”

“The power of the teaching is in the heart of the person carrying out the teaching.”

“People ask how to stay in realization; be relentlessly devoted to it. Make it an act of loving devotion.”

“Orient towards the silent presence of being.”

“There’s something magical about allowing experience to be as it is.”

“There is something continuous right in the middle of every experience we are having.”

“It is freedom to see and experience the face of God in everything.”

“If we run from any dimension of being, we can’t crack it open.” 

“Virtually all of the great spiritual exemplars are profound expressions of individuality.”

“It’s possible to feel like an individual without feeling separate.”

“When we stop paying so much attention to the narrative, and start paying attention to the context, we start encountering the light of our being.”

“If we lose contact with our heart, we lose contact with our soul.”

“Think of attention as a gift.”

“To give your attention is an act of self-giving.”

“The biggest mystery in the universe is you.”

What we know is a pinprick compared to the immensity of what we don’t know.”
