‘The Reality that these teachings are pointing toward is not hidden, or secret, or far away. You cannot earn it, deserve it, or figure it out. At this very moment, Reality and completeness are in plain sight.’ (The Way of Liberation)
Alongside this wonderful expression, I also recently copied a quote, although from where I cannot now remember:
‘The manifestation of our conscious experience is in large part determined by the linguistic concepts we use to understand the world around us. These concepts categorize our experience, which in turn allows us to impose artificial boundaries on reality so we can make it a little more coherent as we move through life.’
Our practice is to move from the latter way of experiencing the world to the former.
