-Mindfulness is meant to reveal our fundamental nature
-Our fundamental nature is formless, timeless, immediate, and complete
-Mindfulness evolves out of the watcher of the experience into watching, which is no longer controlled by the egoic sense of self
-Transcendent freedom is seeing reality through formless awareness and not through the distorted lens of the ego
