Learning to swim in the ever-changing ocean of experience, 2014

For change to be fundamental it has to address the foundation, the ground, the basis, the source. For it to be radical it has to identify the radix, the root. Only when the root of experience is firmly planted in the ground of spacious presence can healthy growth occur — the growth which is revealed both in the co-emergence of all the field factors and in the non-duality of the ground and that which manifests from it.
If psychotherapy is to enable this to occur there has to be a return to that which is always already available. The talking cure takes us only so far — the key journey is that of opening to, listening to and becoming silence, stillness, peace.
