When you Rest in Quietness,
and your image of yourself fades,
and your image of the world fades,
and your ideas of others fade, what’s left?
A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

December 2, 2013

It’s coming to grips with the fact that
the only person who can cause us to suffer,
who can cause us to mis-perceive illusion and separation,
who has this much power,
is ourselves.

Nothing in the exterior environment causes us
to lose a sense of the awakened state.

Nobody we meet, no situation we deal with
has the power to cause us to fall out of awakening.

It is one of the most important realizations we can make.
It’s all an inside job.
It’s all something we do to ourselves—
mistakenly, unknowingly,
and often times unconsciously.
