Know the Self within and go beyond all sorrow.
   – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

When all hostility, fear, and insecurity are erased from your mind, the state that remains is pure joy.

That state, hidden at the very center of consciousness, is the Eden to which the long journey of spiritual seeking leads. It is “the peace that passeth all understanding,” that resolves all conflicts, fulfills all desires, and banishes all fear.

The purpose of all valid spiritual disciplines, whatever the religion from which they spring, is to enable us to return to this native state of being – not after death but here and now, in unbroken awareness of the divinity within us and throughout creation. Theologians may quarrel, but the mystics of the world speak the same language, and the practices they follow lead to the same goal.
