"The bad news is you're falling through the air, nothing to hang
on to, no
parachute. The good news is there's no ground.

Instead of saying, 'I am uncertain,'
why not say, 'I am an
ocean of possibility'?
Instead of saying, 'I am confused,'
why not say,
'I am open and I welcome it all'?
Silence is the true upadesa (teaching).
It is the perfect
upadesa. It is suited
only for the most advanced seeker.
others are unable to draw full inspiration
from it. Therefore
they require words to
explain the truth. But truth is
words. It does not admit of explanation.
All that is possible
to do is to indicate it.

of this seamless and all-inclusive happening. The acceptance that is
pointed to is absolutely immediateright here, right now, not a second
minute from nowand the perfection of what is INCLUDES not only the
problems but also the noticing of problems, the impulse to fix and heal
things, and the actions that emerge from those impulses.
