what we lose

When we trust the truth of direct experience,
we lose: apparently everything. The sense of a personal “I,” our belief systems, past, future, fears, hopes, dreams, suffering.
Even our spiritual path.

We gain: everything–except there is no “I” to gain it.

We have the opportunity to serve in the clearest way we can–with love that does not grasp.

Are you ready?
