how to skip steps

If your everyday practice is to open to

your emotions, to all the people you meet,

to all the situations you encounter,

without closing down, trusting that you

can do that- then that will take you as far

as you can go. And then you’ll understand

all the teachings that anyone has ever taught.

subtle awareness

Whether we admit it or not, we all want to change something fundamental about ourselves. Most likely though, being human, our first effort may be targeted at changing whoever is in our line of sight. We look for ways to get others to change- be they our spouses, employers, children or parents- and search out ways to cajole or coerce them to get with the program. With a modicum of insight, however, we will probably recognize that deep change must occur first within ourselves. Yet, just how this long-term change process occurs remains elusive.
