    When I am not driven by my selfishness and self-centeredness and my egoic mind, I sense and experience the oneness of all life, the light within, the Root of the Root of My Self. I see and feel the presence of Love connecting me with the source of eternal light. When I hold a baby crying close to my heart, feed a hungry man, help someone deeply saddened by the loss of his beloved, I feel my heart touching the other's heart. These are the times I feel returning to the root of the root of myself.

    Such selfless and going beyond my self-experiences help me realize that I am ruby embedded in granite.I feel the outer covers of separateness breaking away showing the ruby shining within my inner self.

    According to my understanding and experience, wisdom tradtions of spiritualiy, the source of creation is within us; there is inherent divinity in all lof us regardless of outward differences. Rumi calls it the Root of the Root of Yourself.
    The veil of avidya-ignorance-causes the illusion of separateness form the Divine source of creation. Once the veil is removed, we can see the light of the eternal being, the Presence, the Treasure of Holy Light.

    Namaste!
