Author Quotes

Deep within the tenderness of feeling we experience the 'Myness' of feeling. We say, 'I feel like this.' 'I feel.' 'I feel my feelings.' So the I in the seat of all my myness is more tenderly located within the feeling. Deep within the I is a more tender level of creative intelligence which is 'I-ness'. The 'I-ness' is almost the abstract value of individual existence, intelligence. And deep within, that individual 'I-ness' is boundless - the unmanifest, non-changing, immortal, eternal reality.

I am reminded of a successful businessman in America sitting with his eyes closed, who proclaims success in his activities by closing the eyes and practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique. This is the changed face of success. Success lies in handling nature, and nature is one's own nature. The more you are able to handle yourself, the more you are able to handle the world.
