INTO THE ISNESS OF THE ONE ETERNAL MOMENT
ALL IS ALWAYS NOW THAT THE SOUL REQUIRES
You cannot fight pain and pleasure on the level of consciousness.
To go beyond them you must go beyond consciousness,
which is possible only when you look at consciousness
as something that happens to you and not in you,
as something external, alien, superimposed.
Then, suddenly you are free of consciousness,
with nothing to intrude.
And that is your true state.

sorrow and joy, are inseparably mixed in it.
The very will to life that brought one to light, however,
was a will to come even through pain into this world;
else one never would have got here.
And that is the notion underlying the oriental idea of reincarnation.
Since you came to birth in this world at this time, in this place,
and with this particular destiny,
it was this indeed that you wanted and required for your own ultimate illumination.
That was a great big wonderful thing that you thereupon brought to pass;
not the "you", of course, that you now suppose yourself to be,
the "you" that was already there before you were born
and which even now is keeping your heart beating and your lungs breathing and doing for you all those complicated things inside that are your life.
You are not now to lose your nerve!
Go on through with it and play your own game all the way!
