“To ask ‘Who am I?’ isn’t really assuming that there is an ‘I’ there. It’s kind of calling the whole notion into question.” 

“There isn’t a self behind the thought or within the thought. The self is the thought.”

“The divisions that we’ve created in our minds don’t actually exist that way in nature. Because in nature, there are no blades of grass all by themselves, independently existing.”

“At a deeper level, we are the unknown, encountering itself.”

“Even though God transcends the faces of God, it doesn’t mean God is apart from those faces.”

“There isn’t a perceiver of perceptions, there isn’t a hearer of sounds, there isn’t a thinker of thoughts, and there isn’t a receiver of experiences.”

“You can’t survive a second without a cosmos.”

“When you go to get rid of your ego or to destroy your ego, it’s not really successful because the ego’s not really a thing.”

“If we get stuck in the view of eternity, then we start to lose touch with our connectedness.”

“When you cling to the truth, your clinging starts to turn it into a distorted illusion.” 

“The Bodhisattva doesn’t hide in their nirvana; they use it as a foundation in which to have a deeper engagement in life.”
