“There’s only one reason why you’re not experiening bliss at this present moment, and it’s because you’re thinking or focusing on what you don’t have. – Right now you have everything you need to be in bliss.”

“The trouble with people is that they are busy fixing things they don’t even understand. We’re always fixing things, aren’t we? It never strikes us that things don’t need to be fixed. They really don’t. This is a great illumination. They need to be understood. If you understood them, they’d change.”

“If you want anything too badly, you’re in big trouble. – You want to hope for something better than what you have right now, don’t you? Otherwise you wouldn’t be hoping. But then you forget that you have it all right now anyway, and you don’t know it. Why not concentrate on the now instead of hoping for better times in the future? Why not understand the now instead of forgetting it and hoping for the future? Isn’t the future just another trap?”
