and without resistance I disappeared into Silence.
It was more than an epiphany …
It was my soul’s homecoming, my heart’s overflowing love, and my mind’s eternal peace.
In the world of Silence, my twin questions
– the ones that had grown within me as renegade cells – dissolved and disappeared.

both from within and without.
then doing, and then having.
You are going the “having-doing-being” way,
which leads to an endless pursuit of having.
This is the basis of an unfulfilled life.
involved with everything that the five senses
can perceive in a given moment.
This is all-inclusive passion.
This is true compassion.
Compassion is not an attitude of kindness
but an instrument of unprejudiced involvement.

Laurens van der Post
and an African Bushman's
A story told to Sir Laurens van der Post by the African Bushmen....
But then it was suddenly as if a voice within him was commanding him to look up
at the forbidden summit and as he did so he saw,
in the light of one of the greatest of mythological African sunsets,
a pure white feather fluttering down from on high towards him.
He put out his hand and grasped the feather and,
they who told me the story said,
he died content.
When I asked them what the name of this great white bird was, they told me:
'The bird has many names but we believe it was the Bird of Truth.'

The essence of a lifetime of writing from one of the nineteenth centuries most respected figures. Contemporary and friend of C. G. Jung this man's writing reflects far-ranging ideas and extraordinary experiences
Station 10: Feather Fall
Gradually I have formed the impression, now a certainty, that Laurens van der Post is a member of a vast family which constitutes a community of spirit and heart that has existed throughout our history.
Like those wells in the desert that are so difficult to find and so far apart,
yet are linked beneath the ground and combine invisibly to quench one's thirst,
this vast and ever growing family of fellow-travellers is the company in which,
step by step, century by century, we can all join in the ultimate quest,
following the flight of the great white bird of truth,
ready in heart and mind for its eventual feather fall.
Mentions that these words come from Jean-Marc Pottiez, editor of van der Post's Feather Fall.
Let us meditate on words which van der Post once wrote of Jung:
There is clear implication in his writing...
that the self achieved lived on
at least as image and incorruptible core of new being.
Death freed it only from what was false and provisional
and sent it on indestructible in time
to serve in another season of itself.
