newDharma Talk | Stilling the Patterns of the Mind

We practice our habits as if we have no control over them, forgetting that we are the thing that keeps the habit going. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to stop. But stopping is the only way you’ll begin to understand who you really are, and it is the only way you’ll begin to see your true nature.

“Your human form took millions of years, millions of years, to be an expression of the universe wanting to be awake to itself. Who are you to deny that responsibility? How could you possibly do anything else? How could you waste your time scratching emotional itches all the time instead of rising to the occasion of what you were born for, to see yourself, you, as the universe, as all consciousness? Recognizing the truth of that is what you’re here for.”
