“What perspective would allow you to be completely available? The magic of speaking into Big Mind is that the answer is literally in the question. It comes through the question, unknowingly, so that mystery remains a mystery. That’s why it’s so beautiful. To perceive it truly is to be awestruck.” Recorded 8/8/2015 in Santa Cruz.
“Listen without trying to understand the meaning of the words. Transmission is a nonverbal communication. It’s within you, always working. Be willing to be vulnerable, to actually be receptive to that inner guiding force transforming you.” Recorded 8/3/2015 in San Francisco.
Even though transmission may seem to be coming from outside of you, in reality that which you are is simply being awakened by that which everything is. When you’re really tuned into the transmission, there is no teacher, and no student. There’s just this radiant field of energy, flowing in every direction simultaneously. Recorded 7/13/2015 in San Francisco.
“How often do we experience ordinary moments as sensual, rather than observing them in some detached way? The truth is that there is nothing and no one outside of yourself. When we become the space of being, there is nothing outside of us. When you begin to realize that you are everything that is perceived, then how you bring attention to it has the possibility of sensuality, of love; of tenderness, compassion, and even forgiveness for the parts that are still acting out.” Recorded 7/11/2015 in Santa Cruz.
“One minus one equals freedom. Coming back to zero, everything and nothing simultaneously. Relative and absolute integrated — one minus one. Whatever you have, give it away. Whatever you’re holding on to, let go of. Return back to zero; to openness; to clarity. Then you are what you see. You are what you feel. Everyone, in their own experience, has to find out how to make *one minus one* happen.” Recorded 6/15/2015 in San Francisco.
“Let yourself begin to find a natural, easy stillness. In allowing yourself simply to be aware — to be awareness — you literally begin to feel or see as spaciousness, as presence; as vast, boundaryless consciousness itself, enriching and enlivening your whole being.” Recorded 6/13/2015 in Santa Cruz.
“Forget everything you know: your past, your future, your beliefs. Because what happens here is a mysterious, amazing, miraculous process of becoming unburdened, of lightening up — of enlightening! — so that the light that you are actually can shine, the loving heart that you are can radiate, and you can be happy — unconditionally happy — and have a good life.” Recorded 5/30/2015 in Tiburon.
“The real gift of awakening and opening is truly loving. We open into being authentically loving beings — enlightened, radiant, filled with spirit, and completely grounded in authentic humanity.” Recorded 4/13/2015 in San Francisco.
What is “awake”? Awake is when you’re connected, when you’re actually available to what you’re sensing and feeling, and to what others are sensing and feeling. When we stop, when we open, we see and feel how we’ve been holding back, and how we can begin to get out of our own way.
Connection is our true nature. It’s an aliveness, a presence, a vastness. The reason we come here — the reason we *are* here — is to discover that for the first time; or to rediscover it; or to deepen into what is already present for us.
