Quotes from this Download Set:

“Meditation is the art of listening with the whole body.”

“When we stop trying to control our experience, then something totally fresh arises.”

“The mind’s most masterful act is creating the idea of ourselves.”

“The fundamental practice is to rest as awareness.”

“Most suffering is basically the way you’re misperceiving life.”

“If you look inside and ask ‘Who am I?’ and don’t get an answer, that’s the beginning of getting an answer.”

“What keeps you searching is the imagination that it’s not here.”

“One indicator of spiritual awakening vs. spiritual experience is that you realized it’s been there all along. Spiritual experiences come and go; spiritual maturity realizes that all experiences are impermanent.”

“If we’re pursuing something beyond the present moment, then it’s really hard to see what is in the present.”

“It is actually a beautiful thing and part of spiritually growing up to realize that nobody can give you the truth or reality.”

“Every moment is a manifestation of what you value.”

“When we can finally let go of the narcissistic obsession with trying to be the perfect person, we can actually just refocus on being the true person.

Recorded at Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina on March 20-26, 2016.
