A moment of direct pristine awareness


The Buddha’s plan went far beyond learning to become “okay.” His aim was for us to become Buddhas: to awaken our capacity to approach every experience — grief, shame, jealousy, frustration, illness, and even death —with the innocent perspective we experience when looking for the first time, for example, at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, or the views from the top of Taipei 101. Before fear, judgment, anxiety, or opinion intervenes, there’s a moment of direct pristine awareness that transcends any distinction between experience and the experiencer.
