Our birthright

The only way to truly come to an understanding of one's own true nature, is to allow oneself to rest for short moments repeated many times when we remember to do so. Understanding this from an intellectual perspective is wonderful, but unless we have the instinctive recognition of the pervasive fullness and stability of the soothing energy of awareness, as our true identity, we will be missing the gift of what it means to be human.

It is important to be extremely gentle with ourselves as we gain familiarity with the Basic State of Awareness. Just as it took time for us to condition ourselves into believing our points of view, it will take time for us to gain confidence in the stability of awareness that is inherent to us all–our birthright.
