This practice invites us to be vulnerable, open, and intimate. This is incredibly challenging and requires courage, but it also is the only way to look deeply into who we are.

How can we not be deluded? By investigating the great matter of life and death, we see what our thinking creates. By using the Four Great Vows as a guide we see more clearly how to help.

The essence of faith is not faith in some thing. It is not an object. It is the absence of doubt. When we are truly entrusting in the heart, there is no faith there just is no doubt. Faith is the eyes we are looking through, the ears we are hearing with. It is the doubtless, present awareness that allows what is arising to arise as intimate and worthy of engaging.

When you make the experience of a completely quiet mind, you gain an understanding of what we talk about when we say you can be free. Usually we are just dragged around by our opinions, by our likes and dislikes, but if this stops this then you get an expression of freedom and that is also a different happiness.
