Why are we asked to practice the whole time? It is because the mind is collecting data through moment-to-moment awareness. When the data is complete, understanding will arise. It is only when we practice consistently and continuously in the right way will momentum build and wisdom grow.

(U Tejaniya Sayadaw, Dhamma Everywhere, 57)

Actually we don’t have to become anything. Relaxing into being, we feel our deep intimacy with life. We feel ourselves as life. We don’t need affirmation through servicing the endless demands to achieve; instead, life itself affirms our existence.

(Thanissara, Listening to the Heart, 118)
