we already have what we need


We already

have what we need.

The wisdom, the strength,

the confidence, the awakened heart

and mind are always accessible here and

now. A process of uncovering our

natural openness, uncovering

our natural intelligence

and warmth.


That’s why

when we feel caught

in darkness, suddenly the clouds

can part. Out of nowhere we cheer up

or relax or experience the vastness

of our minds. No one else

gives this to
