Our Apparent separateness from the rest of theuniverse is not due to the universe being separatefrom us, but because we have contracted withinour minds what we think we are.
We must always be aware that our use oflanguage is limited, is only representational ....We must be careful not to get trapped in wordsand definitions.
When we really understand, we begin to useour own language, our own expression - we nolonger stick to formulas and phrases that ourteachers used.
Spiritual understanding is not something whichcomes from the head, from the intellect - it comesfrom a deep feeling-level understanding.

Life knows no me’ nor ‘I’ -it exists purely in our imagination.
