“You have thoughts about me. There are things you like about me. There are things you disagree without about me. You have ideas about who I am and what I stand for. Those are concepts you define. You are having a relationship with me as a concept.” Brook Castillo

“Pure circumstances are circumstances without language.

“Most of us think our ideas about things are the things themselves.

“We mistake our stories for the things.

“We mistake our interpretation for the thing. We start having relationships with our stories instead of the things.”

“You have thoughts about me. There are things you like about me. There are things you disagree without about me. You have ideas about who I am and what I stand for. Those are concepts you define. You are having a relationship with me as a concept.

“Think about my name. The language of my name. There’s me and there’s my name. They’re different things. There’s me and there’s the description of me. The circumstance is your experience of me: The experience of my voice without language. If we were in the same room, the physical experience of me.”

“The goal isn’t to have direct experience without language.”

“Not to stay there and live there. Just know that circumstance gives you a place to rest in between your models.”

“Passing through neutral.”

“Sometimes you can’t go from a negative thought to a positive thought.

“Sometimes it’s easier to go from: I hate my body to I have a body to I love my body.”
