Q&A Session Topics Include:
“Who knows what the potentiality of both realization and the human embodiment of it is?”
“There’s no way to be deeply in love and play it safe.”
“Be truthful. That takes courage. Sometimes the truest thing you know is you don’t know. You don’t know what to do, or you don’t know what to say.”
“Give your best to the parts yourself that need it the most.”
“There’s a reason that spiritual aspirants have meditated on death, because death is like a broom—it sweeps everything away. You don’t take one bit of it with you.”
“There’s no end to the recognition of the core of our being, nor is there any end to how to live from that core, because that takes courage, constant courage and love and devotion. And it does seem that the world is waiting for it, right? This world needs that core to be recognized and to be lived.”
“It’s one thing to be free from form. It’s a whole other thing to be free within form.”
“We think a door needs to open so we can enter into the core being or the sacred place or however you want to think about it, but actually we're always knocking from the inside. All we need to do is just sort of turn around. No doors necessary to go through, no walls to jump through, no gates to break down. There’s just the turning around recognizing what’s always been there.”
“In the embrace of aloneness, we start to find our way more and more, because then we can just be who we are whether it’s understood or not.”
“Everything is real and unreal simultaneously.”
“The part that is waiting for something to happen—can that just for a moment be relinquished?”
“Your life experience and my life experience are different. Our bodies appear different. But there’s that which is right in the core of being that’s the same.”
“Stop, and be found.”
Recorded at the Woudschoten Conference Center in Zeist, The Netherlands on August 4–9, 2019.
