regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.

not sitting for anything in particular,
just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.

He consists only of one quality: witnessing.

you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

and within knowledge everything is included;

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.

my friends in the holiday season is to pause

right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."
