“Spiritual practice is an expression of true nature. It’s not a means to enlightenment—it’s the expression of enlightenment.”

“Spirituality is the exploration of the most fundamental experience of being.”

“Spiritual awakening occurs when you are fully in the present. To be fully in the present is to be spiritually awake.”

“If you’ve had a real glimpse of true nature, even a mild glimpse will show you that ‘We are what we are seeking.’”

“Part of the spiritual instinct is the instinct to experience a more fundamental way of perceiving life and self and others.”
