Quotes from this Download:

“What we put our attention on grows; what we grasp onto, however, causes its diminishment.”

“The highest form of knowing is to enter completely into a state of unknowing.”

“When someone says, ‘I’m ready!’ this precludes awakening because the ego is occupying the space. Instead, awakening happens when the ego is distracted from its own pursuits. Just see all the ways that ego grasps for experience -- this is the real problem.”

“The act of doing something to get the realization back IS the act of separation. Don’t try to recreate the experience or the intensity. Is there part of the experience that is still with you? Without grasping for it, can you put your attention on what is there and just receive it?”

“The mind is fickle. What it sees one moment, it obscures in the next. Just acknowledge what’s already here now. Acknowledgement undercuts the search. Make the mind a study of observation of what is happening now. How does your mind obscure?”

“Make a study of yourself -- not by solving, escaping, or judging. Use discipline without fighting yourself, even if you get lost 100 times in an hour. You’re literally restructuring your consciousness.”

“The knowledge we have of God isn't God. The knowledge we have of Self isn't Self. The knowledge we have of Reality isn't Reality. But the being of it is the highest form of knowledge.”


“The falling away of the self isn’t going beyond anything; it's just falling away. This is not a honeymoon but a new state of being. You don’t come back from it. Relax.”
