The blossoming of understanding

The emergence and blossoming of understanding, love and intelligence has nothing to do with any tradition, no matter how ancient or impressive–it has nothing to do with time. It happens completely on its own when a human being questions, wonders, listens and looks without getting stuck in fear, pleasure and pain. When self concern is quiet, in abeyance, heaven and earth are open. The mystery, the essence of all life is not separate from the silent openness of simple listening.
~Toni Packer
