The journey begins today, in this very moment. We have, each of us, waited our entire lives for the new realities that were already present but which we, in the darkness of our minds, were unable to perceive.
We thought all hope was lost; we thought we could not be saved from the misery that we created around and inside ourselves; we believed — mistakenly –that we could not trust others.
We were, each one of us, mistaken.
The stars, the sky, the clouds, the birds, the squirrels, the fish, and the dogs already understand the mystery that we are only slowly beginning to understand.
The moment of sadness is the moment of great joy
The time of despair is the time of great hope
It is ancient custom among spiritual teachers to hide that which is most precious, be it an idea, a word, or even a person. Those ancient teachers acted in this way for the sake of today. The useless people, the forgettable places, the dumb, unintelligent animals, even the trees — they held in silence the mystery that you and I bear.
A mystery that will heal the universe.
