Quotes from this Download:

“All teachings are meant to speak to the quiet, beautiful place inside, the center of your soul. When silence and teaching come together, they are more powerful than either by itself.”

“Adults can be more confused than children. The way that adults act doesn’t tell you about you. There is something pure and simple about you that is what you really are. Look to that and remind yourself that nothing ‘they’ do can take this inner spark away.”

“Freedom comes with responsibility. If one sees it as ‘my’ freedom, the mind can justify any behavior it wants. This is one of the dangers of a spiritual life.”

“Real awakening comes with an inherent sense of integrity. Something innate in us knows if we’re on or off the mark.”

“Fall into the space of abiding in the hundreds of small moments during the day."

“Don’t go back and try to repeat a moment of clarity in the past. Ask instead, ‘What is awake right now?’ Then your attention is riveted in the present moment. You’re not discounting your past experience but focusing on how it is showing up now. Don’t compare.”

“Let yourself be quiet and intuition will incline in one direction or another.”
