- Her new book, Embodied Enlightenment: Living Your Awakening In Every Moment
- Waking up out of the dream of separation
- Waking up out of the dream of thinking that we are our thoughts and feelings
- Awakening not dependant on or a precursor to one’s psychological health
- Surrendering the need to uphold oneself
- Surrendering the psychological self
- The need for psychological safety giving rise to egoic tendencies
- The defense and attack found in righteousness
- The verticality of being
- Not having an agenda of the outcome when opening ourselves to our experience and meeting it as it is
- How to be free from suffering
- The strength of life’s intelligence
- The ripening that happens within oneself when you’ve finally had enough of running away from pain
- No real relief from pain and no final freedom from pain when all you’re doing is running away from it
- Am I willing to meet this exactly as it is?
- Trying not to try
- True fulfillment is the emptying of the spiritual shopping basket
- The paradox of trying not to try
- Accumulating agendas = committing to a particular spiritual path and expecting that you’ll feel worthy and good enough
- Love is seeking to know itself
- Silence is ever present in everything

A grandfather is talking with his grandson and he says there are two wolves inside of us which are always at war with each other.
One of them is a good wolf which represents things like kindness, bravery and love. The other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed, hatred and fear.
The grandson stops and thinks about it for a second then he looks up at his grandfather and says, “Grandfather, which one wins?”
The grandfather quietly replies, the one you feed
The Tale of Two Wolves is often attributed to the Cherokee indians but there seems to be no real proof of this. It has also been attributed to evangelical preacher Billy Graham and Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw. It appears no one knows for sure but this does not diminish the power of the parable.
This parable goes by many names including:
The Tale of Two Wolves
The Parable of the Two Wolves
Which Wolf Do You Feed
Which Wolf are You Feeding
Which Wolf Will You Feed
It also often features different animals, mainly two dogs
