I am glad that I am no more in my twenties. Everything seemed to be so serious and real.
I quote: " Basically either there is seeing or there isn't, either the veil is dropped or it isn't. Just being a mystic or a yogi or a shaman of course means little: more dream roles for more dream characters. As long as there is anyone here to understand, there is not understanding. As long as there is anyone here to awaken, there is not awakening. .......
There can only be the shift in perception to see maya, the unreal, as unreal."
(David Carse, "perfect, brilliant, stillness, page 95 ff.)
