Quotes from this Download: "It's not the thing that disappears, it's the identification that disappears." • "That which we’re naturally drawn to do tends to be more powerful than anything we decide to do." • "The reason for anything happening in this moment is literally everything that’s happening everywhere." • "It’s important to live the realization on a day-to-day, moment-to-moment basis.
