Abide in the Self

A few quotes that summarize my takeaway from this diamond-like book:
'At a certain point, you recognize that you don't understand a thing, and you experience a moment of surrender. The paradox is that, as soon as you surrender the need to understand, you do understand; and the moment you think you do understand, you don't understand.
In your willingness right now, it this moment, to relinquish all understanding, all that you ever searched for through understanding is revealed.'
'If you are searching for a safe, comfortable life, then the freedom I am pointing to is not for you.
If you have read this far in the book, then you probably already know that.
The invitation to accept the diamond of life is not an invitation to safety and comfort.
It is an invitation to live fully and completely, which is never safe and is often uncomfortable.'
'The only obstacle to realizing the truth of who you are is thinking who you are'
' Call off the search'
