Life on the practical level does not contain any subtle philosophy or
subtle mystical experience. It just is. If we are able to see that
isness, so to speak, then there is a sense of realization. We
experience sudden enlightenment. Without a sense of hopelessness,
there is no way to give birth to sudden enlightenment. Only giving up
our projects brings about the ultimate, definite, positive state of
being, which is the realization that we are already enlightened
beings here and now.
