“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.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

The free, radiant nature of the total living world is not in the least bit concerned about:

  • trying to make ego-“I” disappear.
  • trying to return to its source.

This is because:

1.      Ego-“I” is no hindrance to open, luminous being.
2.      Life (or the totality of appearances) is never separate from its own source.    
Try on a new way of seeing life:

·         The free, radiant nature of the total living being already transcends ego. It gives rise to ego as its own spontaneous play in the worlds!

·         The purpose of life is not return to its Source. The purpose of life is simply Reality. (Life IS the Source Alive—in spontaneously flowing manifestation.)
