“Awakening does not end with the discovery of our true nature as open awareness. This is only the beginning of another process. Life also invites us to discover the true nature of our body and, by extension, the world. There is a natural movement of open, loving awareness to saturate the densest levels of form in order to meet and free the areas of greatest confusion and suffering”
