How It Is


The first step to the knowledge of the wonder and mystery
of life is the recognition of the monstrous nature of the
earthly human realm as well as its glory, the realization
that this is just how it is and that it cannot and will not
be changed. Those who think they know how the universe could
have been had they created it, without pain, without sorrow,
without time, without death, are unfit for illumination.
