Quotes from this Download Set:

“Each human is a point of orientation through which the Universe experiences itself.”

“The closer you look for yourself, the more you realize that what you’re looking at is a kind of phantom.”

“In meditation, you can sit and look for the right experience forever without getting to the real point—who is the one sitting there meditating?”

“Stillness is the experience of complete and utter absence of resistance.”

“Letting go also means letting be.”

“Not knowing is the way to deeper liberating knowledge.”

“Enlightenment isn’t about adding something to your current condition; it’s about revealing something about your current condition. You don’t gain control over your current condition; you relinquish trying to control it. Then you’re not confined by it.”

“We think the enlightened ones can stop their mind. No, they can’t—they’re just not trying to.”

“Every part of your experience is just happening, just spontaneously arising; the seeing of this is also part of the spontaneity.”

“Enlightenment is simply seeing all existence from a wordless place.”

“At some point you realize the self was never there; it was just a convincing illusion.”

“Profound freedom is a profound intimacy with life.”

Recorded at Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York on April 7-14, 2017.
