Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light from which everything in the universe comes, to which everything in the universe returns; the original nature of your own mind. The natural state of the universe unmanifest. Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it. It is your own true nature, it is home.

“Liberation Through Seeing”

“But, nevertheless, if there is even the slightest recognition, liberation is easy. Should you ask why this is so—it is because once the awesome, terrifying and fearful appearances arise, the awareness does not have the luxury of distraction. The awareness is one-pointedly concentrated.” Karma-glin-pa, author of the Tibetan Book of the Dead

The joy of possessing does not bring us pleasure anymore once we already possess something, and we are constantly trying to look for more possessions, but it turns out to be the same process all over again; so there is constant intense hunger which is based not on a sense of poverty but on the realization that we already have everything yet we cannot enjoy it.

EMI STUDIOS, LONDON, APRIL 14 1966

“Following their final British concert tour, The Beatles took four months off - an act of commercial suicide for any lesser group in the heady firmament of mid-1960s pop. The expected output of three singles, two albums and a film was no longer a consideration - The Beatles would work at their own pace until they were satisfied with the result. The sessions for what became ‘Revolver’ commenced on April 6. If critics were taken aback and fans caught unawares by the maturity evident in ‘Rubber Soul’, they were in for an even greater shock. The die was cast from the first song recorded - John Lennon’s ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ - which sounded far beyond the realms of ordinary 1966-style pop music with its collage of tape loops, disembodied vocals and lyrics based on ‘The Tibetan Book Of The Dead’. Paul’s ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’ and George’s first full-blown Indian experiment, ‘Love You To’ (featuring the sitar Sean O’Mahony is holding) followed. A week after the sessions started, Paul’s ‘Paperback Writer’ was crafted to perfection in the smaller No.3 studio. The lengthy time involved working out ideas for the backing track would mean long chess games for Ringo…” - From ‘Looking Through You’

You must be ready to accept the possibility that there is a limitless range of awareness for which we now have no words; that awareness can expand beyond range of your ego, your self, your familiar identity, beyond everything you have learned, beyond your notions of space and time, beyond the differences which usually separate people from each other and from the world around them.
