Keep it simple. Recognise for short moments that whatever appears is inseparable from the Basic State of natural perfection.
Ask yourself if all the ideas and concepts that you accumulated throughout your life ever led you to a clear understanding of the fundamental nature of existence and well-being in every moment? If the answer is "no" then why not try relying on short moments of awareness and see what happens.
You might just find that all the understanding, all the ease and well-being that you sought are in fact accessible right here and now. Until you try you will never know.
