Quotes from this Download Set:

“We don’t just wander around ‘in’ nature, we are a part of nature.”

“We’ve lost our connection to the poetry of religion; we’re stuck in the prose of it.”

“Enlightenment isn’t an escape hatch -- it’s embracing all the dimensions of life.”

“Awakening is an ever unfolding process; not an event.”

“Whatever you’re experiencing, trust it.”

“Meditation is a concentrated time to listen to the mystery of you.”

“Even the most enlightened are practicing evermore -- there’s no end to the infinite.”

“As soon as you think you’ve arrived you become a dangerous human being.”

“The way the mind packages the idea of realization is a set up for suffering.”

“Your willingness to be honest brings you to more clarity.”

“Unity has limitations because it’s one state amongst infinite states.”

“Ego is a perspective.”

“Enlightenment is not about being able to sustain any perspective.”

“Fear is a guardian; it’s guarding something sacred.”

“The flip side of existential fear is awe and wonder.”

“If you don’t recoil from tragedy it brings you into a deeper alignment with life.”

Recorded at Mount Madonna Center in Watsonville, California on February 8-13, 2015.
