The real secret
“The number of minds in the universe is one.”
– Erwin Schrödinger, grandfather of the mathematics underlying quantum physics
“The perception of a division between self and other is a kind of optical delusion.”
This is the real secret. Plumb the meaning of this, and you will be truly free. This is what enlightenment means.
Keep peeling back the layers. Glimpse after glimpse, we will find it, sooner or later, and learn to abide in that peace which surpasseth all. It is closer than the breathe itself. It is discovering our true nature.
This is what the Taoists mean by, “return to the source,” “return to your original nature.”
“Man fears that in the void he will lose himself, but it is in the void that he finds himself.”
– Zen saying
This is it. Paradise is found within.
As Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is within you.
