The Living Example

Inquiry is grace.  It wakes up inside you, and it’s alive, and there’s no suffering that can stand against it.  It will take you over, and then it doesn’t matter what life brings you, “good” or “bad.”  You open your arms to the worst that can happen, because inquiry will continue to hold you, safely, sweetly, through it all.  Even the most radical problem becomes just a sweet, natural happening, an opportunity for your own self-realization.  And when others are experiencing terror, you are the embodiment of clarity and compassion.  You are the living example.
