“There’s something about you that you can’t define for yourself, much less somebody else. It’s something elusive that can never be tied down. We often think that the really awake people somehow have it tied down. And actually, it’s just the opposite.”  

“There’s some essence of being that’s never been harmed, never been damaged, can’t be damaged by life or death. And there’s our essential paradox. Something indestructible and timeless; something time-bound, fragile, and imperfect—all in one.”

“Our mind is assembling our entire experience of being at every moment.”

“Even in wholeness, there’s a kind of intangibility—but we can just rest into that.”

“Find what you can trust in yourself.”
