Each of us enters practice with a sense that there is something beyond our judging, discursive mind. This is the “diamond eye” that each of us possess. However, just as fruit takes time to ripen, we too must practice to release all our karmic baggage. Then we will naturally let go into the boundless infinity of our lives.
