Awakening is the only thing that has value in life, and when we practice
with the right intention, everything becomes possible.
The obstacle toour happiness, no matter how much we can resist these next few words,
is always ourself, and so our loving practice is not to ‘get something’,
but to see something. We cultivate awareness to see our old story, our
identification with it, and the consequence of that well established habit.
Until we understand this intuitively, our life remains the same,
no matter what external changes we make.
The purpose of practice is not to acquire new ego based identities.
The purpose of practice is not even to be happy.
The purpose of practice is to be free.
