When we relate with relative truth, we are no longer shocked by our mind. We begin to see the simplicity and the reality of things. When we sit on our cushions and practice, we come across all sorts of thought patterns and desires. Whether we are rereading our autobiography, so to speak, discovering all sorts of choices, thinking we should leave, and or thinking we should stay—all of this is included in the relative truth of our thought patterns.
