"The ideal of how we should be is the most poisonous thing in the whole world.”
"The thing that erodes self-centeredness - the mischief in our life - is the open experiencing of our life at the moment."
"The intelligent suffering of experiencing seems horrible from the usual self-centered point of view of most people."
"Practice is not thinking about our life; it is bodily feeling the totality of life."
"A good practice is absolutely simple."
