[Thomas McConkie, Mindfulness Teacher] So if we could just settle in for a moment. And just appreciate where you've been, in our gathering here, in our time together, but also in your life. I'll invite you back to where we started, just how much you care. As human beings, we can't help but care about something. And there are different traditions, different paths, legitimate ways to talk about what we care about most, what we hold to be of ultimate concern. And what do we imagine will be the payoff if we were to be wildly successful on this path, all of our heart's desires were fulfilled, what would it look like? In other words, what is the highest possibility we hold in our heart for what a human life can be and what we can become? And whatever comes to your heart when you ask this question, I want you to taste it right here and now. Not the kingdom of heaven in some distant place but a taste of it right here and now. Salvation. Awakening. Right here and now. Even if in a relative way, we're sure to become more awakened over the decades, centuries, and eons. Right now, a taste of it. No distance between us and our Buddha nature. And if you dream of being saved, your soul being redeemed by the healing power of Christ, I want you to just taste the goodness, the basic goodness in your own being right here and now. The very goodness that is capable of being transformed, even into divinity. The mind works with time. The horizontal crossbar of the crucifix. But there's something deeper in the mind, deeper than the mind that works with timelessness, spacelessness. In other words, now, always now. So as we open our minds, our hearts, our whole beings to the fruits of the path, let the fruits be right now. In Yeshua's words, the time is ripe. The divine realm is already so close to you. Turn toward it. Trust this good news. Thank you.
