Quotes from this Download Set:
“It’s one thing to be free without form; it’s quite another to be free with form. Many people can feel relatively happy and free when free of constraints. But have they found freedom within the forms of their lives?”
“It’s only by embracing constraint that you can be free within it.”
“At the root of reality, all of the opposites seem to come together. Formless awareness is the mountains, clouds, and sky. And the mountains, clouds, and sky are formless awareness.”
“The funny thing about ‘the witness’ is that there is no ‘the’ -- there’s just witnessing.”
“Don’t look outside of what’s presently occurring right now for recognizing our true nature.”
“The orientation we have at any given moment is a manifestation of what we value. What we do shows what we value, not what we think.”
“Most people do not treat themselves as if they are someone they really care about.”
“One of the hardest things to do in life is take on somebody else’s reality.”
“Trying to maintain the great experiences of meditation contains tragedy because they will eventually go away.”
“It’s important to be oriented to the ‘always and already’ rather than to what might come later.”
“There is no end to which we can embody what we have realized.”
Recorded in Watsonville California on February 25 - March 2, 2018.
