“Perhaps you have performed many practices and have derived some benefit from them, but now you have been drawn to this direct and simple way of self-inquiry. I’m not going to give you seventeen steps to anything. Not even a single step! Lay down your arms, lay down your techniques for a moment, and take some rest. Feel your heart again.
You have tried it the hard way. Now try it the heart’s way, the effortless way, for a while. I have not come to burden you but rather to free you of the notion that you need to do anything to be your Self. The Divine is not even a fraction of an inch away from you. It can never be apart from you. It is the core of your very Being.”
