     If we wish to find the center of unchanging stillness (this is not an idle intellectual question)

    If we really, desperately wish to be there

    then we need to drop from our vocabulary words like incredible, awesome, mind boggling and all the superlatives with which we describe this state.

    these are all judgments made from the safety of our limited experiences of life and indicate a desire to cling to those experiences.

    We have to finally accept that the glorious life is outside this limited and limiting box.

    Without this the process doesn't begin.

    With this done the process ends.
