Quotes from this Download: Being itself is its own orientation. It’s like the center of the storm. It’s totally calm. It’s at peace. No matter what happens, everything is OK. • Spirituality is a hollowing out of one’s self. Finally the husk or the shell of that hollowed-out self gives way to the infinite, to the absolute. • You can’t know how much this raw energy of personal will dominates life, your entire perception of life, until it’s no longer there. • The more you can stay present for what's arising, without getting lost in or pushing away the emotionality of it, the more it releases. It doesn’t need your help in releasing. It needs you to be that intimate, warm space in which everything is allowed to arise.
