To see things as they are, we have to be as we are. The taste of Being is received in the absence of thoughts, feelings, and sensations. When we receive that taste, we can see thoughts as thoughts, feelings as feelings, sensations as sensations. By not identifying with them, we enter into the awareness of our existence.
Put a peach pit in the ground and it becomes a tree. The tree flowers and creates fruit. And again, there is a peach pit. Everything in the universe is like that—beginning and end are one. Part and whole are one—one Existence, one reality, one Awareness, one life, one energy. There is no birth, no death, only the process of formation and transformation. Moment after moment new universe, new you, new everything.
