Ultimate Liberation is to Overcome the Craving for Being

Seattle Insight Meditation Center | Mar 2017

We live in the shadowland of "I" consciousness. This illusion of "I" is rooted in seeking meaning of "who" and "why". But, awakening begins through contemplating "how" and "what". Redirecting the inquiry allows the stilling of thought, entry into an unfettered realm of timelessness and the ending of karma. A slight shift in inquiry can be the difference between liberation and bondage in this very life.
