how you know who you are

Ignorance, in fact, refers to every moment that attention is not consciously abiding in grace. It sustains an experience of life that feels a bit like the biblical sense of “cast from Eden.” Through the lens of wise view, though, we can see this experience of being cast from Eden- separate from grace- not as punishment but as predicament. With grace functioning in us and through us, we can dissipate the mirage of “self” in the clear light of wisdom and come to know the third noble truth for ourselves. The third noble truth is a realized awareness of our own essential nature. Our essential nature has never, even for a moment, been absent. It’s Eden, home. Ignorance never heads that way.    ~Kathleen Dowling Singh

when our beloved teachers pass on these treasures of knowing, may we know how blessed we are (blessed be dear K. Singh 10/1/17)

inquiry for today~   go in, and go slow, and don’t push and don’t try too hard……say yes…..

and the mystics hold us

What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in, is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.     ~Alan Watts
