We go on to the highest form of Spiritual Work, the Realization of the Essence of Man. The final definition of man. And with this definition...the definition of all things, and a realization of the Nature, or Absolute, or God, behind all things.

Who—and what—you really are is at all times utterly still and absolutely silent.

- Bob Cergol

It's useful to keep the "back of the book" answer in mind. Throughout history, in every part of the world, everyone who has ever awakened to the true nature of Reality reports the same thing: The person you think yourself to be does not exist—there is no world, there are no people.

- Bart Marshall

Step #1 is intuiting, or hearing and believing, that all answers lie within. If you're fortunate, this intuition or belief will also include the understanding that you don't find the answer but become it.

Death is inside each of us. I don't mean that we will all die one day. I mean that if we peer inside, down the mazy layers of noise that pass for a mind, we discover a black wall of the unknown. Behind this, inside us, is death.

- Shawn Nevins

Awareness, Love, is what we are, not romantic love or anything that the relative or ego can get control of, but truly, all there is, is Love. This "pearl beyond price" is what is at the core of each of us, and it is up to each of us individually to take the great journey within.
