Thought of the week

The spiritual journey is like traveling from one valley to another: each mountain pass reveals a more magnificent landscape than the previous one. [...] Within Awakening, beyond hope and doubt, the word "happiness" itself loses all meaning. The shadows of concepts dissolve at the dawn of non-duality. [...] One who has realized the ultimate nature of things is like a navigator approaching an island made entirely of fine gold: even if they search for ordinary stones, they will not find any.
