A Full Contact Sport

Posted on November, 2015

What if we decided to meet life unreservedly and nakedly? How would our life change?

The freshness of life would open up to us and a sense of abundance would emerge in what has already been given. When we enclose life too closely, we experience it as continuously scarce.

The awakened moment is an unprotected meeting with “what is”, a full contact sport. The journey of practice is located right in the middle of life, and our true calling is to find out what it is to be a human being.

The quest is about transformation rather than perfection. No moment is unwanted and, thus, our awakening is possible right where we are. We are invited to be intimate with the world and experience the bones and breath of each precious moment.
