"There are no steps to self-realisation. There is nothing gradual about it. It happens suddenly and is irreversible….Just like on sunrise you see things as they are, so on self-realisation you see everything as it is. The world of illusions is left behind."
Birth and Death
'Birth is wondrous, so is death, and so is the ultimate reality that underlies both. If you can touch that wonder, you will no longer be indifferent, and little by little, you will become solid and free in your attitude and your life.'
- Thich Nhat Hanh, Teachings on Love.
