“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

The Basis of Happiness



All that appears only changes and disappears. But the essential nature and condition of all that we love is never threatened. The Basis of all life is immortal (or unborn and undying). The Basis of all is self-radiant being. It is the only “Person,” the single Identity or Self of all that appears. The Basis of all is not locatable, but non-local, all-pervading, all-inclusive, complete, prior and absolutely singular.

Reality is never identified. Every identity is un-Real. The Basis of all can never be found, known, remembered, imagined, defined, limited, described or compared. The Only Person is not cognized over and against any thing. The Great Person (the Person of all life) can only be intuited and understood. The Radiant Transcendental Being must be accepted (presumed) and lived, directly.

Take heart as that one. Take your stand as that one. Live your moments as that one. Be whole. Practice Happiness (Breathe and Smile).

“Yes” is the Word.

“Amen” is the prayer.
