True freedom is being at ease with whatever occurs. This can only happen when we leave everything just as it is and do not try to change the flow of phenomena. By relying on awareness we become familiar with the unchanging nature that is at the root of every perception. When we become confident that this ground of absolute ease and openness is always already the case then we are no longer a victim of our unpredictable thoughts. Instead we can allow them to be whatever they are, secure in the recognition of their inseparability from the basic state. It is quite a relief to know that your thoughts and emotions are already perfect for this recognition to take place.
