Quotes from this Download: “What in your experience is not measurable or describable? That’s what ineffable means.” • “We imagine that without our stories and myths, we would be lost in a desperate void of meaninglessness and purposelessness. But meaninglessness and purposelessness are stories also.” • “All existence is sacred. The only thing that makes something not seem sacred is your idea about it.” • “Liberation is the freedom from being fixated in any point of view, whether limited or boundless.” • “Are your conclusions actually worthy of the immensity of life? Be delighted at how your conclusions can change your perception of life.” • “Verbal answers are the baby steps along the way. The real answer is the ineffable itself.”
