“Enlightened consciousness, awakened consciousness, is like a jewel. If you hold a jewel or a crystal up to the light you get the refraction of the different colors like a rainbow.”
In practice, there is an invitation to shift from real-time experiences to the spacious and open heart of wisdom, ease, and graciousness. Through dedication to our practice, we begin to find the trust necessary to remain present no matter the circumstance. As this presence grows, the factors of enlightenment such as mindfulness, joy, and equanimity slowly emerge. The awakened mind and heart are awaiting you, asking only that you make the effort to acknowledge their presence.
