Quotes from this Download Set:

"We're so conditioned into trying to attain a state of mind, but we never often explore what's the natural state of mind, of being."

"If you have the biggest mind-blasting realization that humanity has ever known, and your consciousness has exploded across space and time, it isn't going to be experienced that way indefinitely."

"When we stop trying to control the content of our consciousness, this stopping allows the content to start to come into its more natural unified state."

“As soon as you’re not thinking yourself into existence, then you don’t exist as a self, whether it lasts a second or the rest of your life.”

"Truth without love is like having only one leg to get around on."

"There's ultimately no deep revelation of true nature without there being at least some deep aspects of love."

"Stillness, in a strict sense, can only be recognized, not imposed."

"All authentic spirituality begins with a question."

“You don’t choose the choices you make. They just simply arise.”

“Awareness itself is unconditioned. What it’s aware of is conditioned.”

Recorded at Woldingham School in Woldingham, Surrey, U.K. on August 14-19, 2016.
