Why not take it easy and make it easy? Why struggle so much to describe everything that is going on? This is very important. By the power of open intelligence, there isn’t any necessity to get into all the descriptive factors about anything. Just glide along as open intelligence and allow its soothing energy to be the essence of everything without interpretation or analysis of what is occurring. In this way everything becomes effortless. By the single power of gaining confidence in open intelligence, it becomes very, very clear that this is all that is necessary to ground one’s self in total well-being.
All phenomena including mind and body are without basis, and there is no possibility that any of them has a foundation. The indivisible exposition of pure intelligence reveals that phenomena are an illusory visible display without independent origin, without ultimate distinctness, and without ultimate identity. As the body itself is a datum that has no finite essence, upon gaining confidence in open intelligence as one’s sole identity, it is clear that the perception of the body is forever self-releasing in the here and now.
What has to come first is the one hundred percent commitment to open intelligence above all else. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing. If you have a family and a job that doesn’t have anything to do with gaining confidence in open intelligence, it doesn’t really matter. By gaining confidence in open intelligence, you will either continue on doing the same job or you’ll evolve into something else. It is likely you will evolve into something else, because you’ll see greater possibilities about what your life is about. You can never know unless you take it all the way. That’s really true. At the same time, open intelligence is self-affirming, so it isn’t like you’re banking on a high-risk investment or something else that is scary.
It is in our practical day-to-day experience that we gain confidence in open intelligence. Maybe before we had been relying on our data or our perspectives that we gathered in order to make sense of reality. However, rather than relying on the opinions we’ve gathered about the nature of reality, we start to rely on open intelligence. More and more we rely on our own direct experience and our own instinctive recognition of open intelligence, rather than relying on all our opinions about everything or the opinions of others.
Have you ever been able to gather all your forces together and just get all those thoughts and emotions that really make you feel good about yourself and conclude that this is who you are? No, because there isn’t any juice in these data; they don’t have any power, and they’ve never had a vigor of their own. The central vigor and vitalizing influence is the power of reality itself. It isn’t in data.
If you put your energy and attention into proving the validity of data in any way, then they will seem real. It’s just the way it is. Here it’s very special and it’s very unique, because it’s really easy to understand the nature of reality. It’s really easy to free yourself up from all of your constructs through maintaining open intelligence.
Have you ever been able to gather all your forces together and just get all those thoughts and emotions that really make you feel good about yourself and conclude that this is who you are?

The central vigor and vitalizing influence is the power of reality itself – open intelligence. It isn’t in data.
If you have moments when you feel like it might not work for you in relation to a particular datum, reach out for support; this is what you want to do. You don’t want to linger in your pain and suffering. You don’t want to keep trying to prove that it’s real. When you know what the solution is, then it’s so easy. When the solution is so easy, it’s just really incredible. Just know that these short moments of open intelligence repeated many times are your greatest resource in life. By the power of that resource you will gain complete stability in open intelligence. This is guaranteed! If you commit yourself to short moments of open intelligence, it is guaranteed.
By the power of gaining confidence in open intelligence through short moments, many times, you start to see that you don’t really need to do anything about the data. First they seem to be like a friend rather than an enemy, and then pretty soon you start to see that you don’t need to do anything about the data because they undo themselves. This is where you start to gain more stability and confidence in open intelligence, because you see that there is no one to do anything about data. You start to see that the data are self-freeing. They are free in their own place. They are spontaneously self-releasing and nothing needs to be done about them.
By the power of short moments, many times, we come to see that everything is equal; no matter what the appearance is, it is absolutely equal. No matter what the label or word is, it is equal. In the radiant clarity of open intelligence, all of these symbols, no matter what they are, are absolutely equal, and they pose neither no threat nor no promise.
