  • Quotes from the book

    "Eternity is not a long time; rather, it is another dimension. It is that dimension to which time-thinking shuts us. And so there never was a creation. Rather, there is a continuous creation going on. This energy is pouring into every cell of our being right now, every board and brick of the buildings we sit in, every grain of sand and wisp of wind."

    "Look up at the lights on the ceiling. Each bulb carries the light. We can think of this totality as many bulbs. On the other hand, we can focus on the one light that emanates from all the bulbs. What are we focusing on, the light or the lights?"

    "Mythology is composed by poets out of their insights and realizations. Mythologies are not invented; they are found. You can no more tell us what your dream is going to be tonight than we can invent a myth. Myths come from the mystical region of essential experience.
