Coming Home



The Buddha considered investigation to be a crucial capacity on the spiritual path.

What is this?

There’s something inside us that wants to know, truly, what’s the nature of things...
really, what am I?

What’s happening right now?

What’s that empty, silent, listening presence that’s aware?

What happens when we begin to ask questions? We become more present. In the moment that I say, “What’s going on inside of me right now?” there’s more presence.

That is the purpose of investigation. It shines the light of presence on the present moment and it allows us to become that presence...to come home.
