Making yourself available to awakening depends on the confidence and freedom that comes from knowing who you really are. Mainly it depends on being willing to rest in uncertainty and letting the koan stories keep you company. Meditation is usually about not trying so hard and trusting the universe to work things out. You can’t break a koan and you can’t do it wrong, but if you keep company with the stories, you find that your thinking changes and you are always welcome in your own life. ”
