We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.

i’m gonna wait for the sun
to shine down on me
i cut a hole in my roof
in the shape of a heart

and i’m goin’ out west
where they’ll appreciate me
goin’ out west

according to Buddha

Witness that you are not the body.
Witness that you are not the mind.
Witness that you are only a witness.
As the witnessing deepens, you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.
