Jack continues his discourse on the nature of the freedom that is our true being.
It does not arrive through the rearranging of circumstance or the discipline of self-improvement, but in the acknowledgment and allowing of all of life’s movements. The aim is not passive acceptance, but rather a relaxation that fuels the energy to respond as necessary. In knowing when to hold on and when to let go, we embody the gracious and honorable presence that characterizes our deeper self.
“Oh nobly born remember your true nature, your Buddha nature. Remember the liberation you were born with. The freedom that is fundamental to your being.”- Siddhartha Gautama Buddha
