    Pema Pera: we cannot understand Being
    Pema Pera: But Being already understands Being
    Pema Pera: if you play as Being at that moment you already understand
    Pema Pera: here and now
    Pema Pera: or more accurately if you let Being play you playing Being
    Maxine Walden: yes, open to the ineffable, unknowable, infinite….maybe that is akin to letting Being playing you playing Being?
    Maxine Walden: garbled the last of that comment, but I am reminded of awe in the face of the unknowable
    Pema Pera: yes I think that is a nice way to phrase it — as long as it is not the you you think you are that is open ;>) if that you tries to take an open stance, she is sabotaging the whole thing right there !!
    Pema Pera: taking an open stance is like being on a boat, throwing out an anchor and THEN giving yourself over to the water — that won’t do
    Pema Pera: letting go of the anchor means letting go of the one who is trying to take an open stance
    Pema Pera: letting go of the taker
    Pema Pera: tricky
    Pema Pera: seemingly impossible
    Pema Pera: but actually surprisingly easy
    Pema Pera: beyond easy and hard

    Pema Pera: Play as Being is so much easier than anything else
    Pema Pera: but because we can’t accept such a precious gift, we feel it has to be more complicated, we have to pay, no pain no gain
    Maxine Walden: all the trappings that we construct…anchors…chains
    Pema Pera: so off we go . . . . not necessary at all!
    Pema Pera: I would turn it around
    Pema Pera: no gain no pain
    Pema Pera: we don’t need to gain anything
    Pema Pera: since we are already AM or ARE or IS
    Pema Pera: so no need for pain either
