What we’re truly seeking is the actual happiness that comes from living in the vast, open heart of oneness. We are only burdened by the stories we are unable to express in the unconditional space of loving awareness. That’s why we come together — to make an offering, in silence or in dialogue, of whatever may be burdening our mind, our body, or our heart.
We see the light in each other. We feel the love of our one heart, and it is a blessing. It brings out gratitude and appreciation, and a real sense of what is truly the meaning of life: to be here, completely, without anything pushing or holding back. The meaning of life is to be fully at home, right now.
Even when circumstance are bombarding or overwhelming you, you always can return right here, and find the flowering of truth within your own heart, your own body, your own being. Always available, always waiting for you to arrive home — infinitely patient, infinitely accepting. This essence that we are is the realm of our healing, the realm of our being forgiven, the realm of our transformation; the realm of our salvation.
“When awareness is present, give it all of your love, and surrender to it. Allow it to awaken and heal you. Every moment of recognizing it is really to be honored so that we let go of ‘when’, we let go of that future possibility, and we realize ‘when’ is actually now — only now.” Recorded 10/22/2012 in San Francisco.
“What would it be like if you could remove all the filters of knowing, and perceive life directly, like a newborn baby?” Recorded 10/15/2012 in San Francisco.
“How do you find the extraordinary in the ordinary? How do you find infinite fullness in a moment of simplicity?” Recorded 9/24/2012 in San Francisco.
“Alignment happens; blossoming happens. And we’re constantly given the opportunity to let it happen, to let go into awareness, to let go into an energetic opening.” Recorded 9/10/2012 in San Francisco.
“If you’re deeply tuned into listening — free of mind, free of thought, listening from the vastness of the heart — that is the ultimate listening. May you deepen and expand into that amazing listening that continues, reveals and unfolds, endlessly and forever.” Recorded 9/8/2012 in Santa Cruz.
“What you want on the deepest level is who you really and truly are, already. So how do you allow the unveiling of that? How do you allow the revelation of your profound presence of being, which is the guiding light of life? By not knowing how, by letting go into trust; by letting go completely of all trying, all doing, all thinking. And then awareness becomes foreground. The intimacy of non-separation becomes conscious and available. That’s how we find our way.” Recorded 8/20/2012 in San Francisco.
“Whatever brings you back, right here — that’s all you need, the mirror of this moment. Can you look, and listen, free of judgments and conclusions? What’s in the mirror right now, the mirror of your seeing, the mirror of your listening? Can you just let it be, without knowing what it means; without strengthening the story of who you have believed yourself to be, but rather, letting yourself relax, unwind? Allow yourself to be open, available to receive this fullness — the mystery of our being alive.” Recorded 8/13/2012 in San Francisco.
