From Paul Brunton's Notebooks - What the Quest is

"Many aspirants wrongly believe the quest to be a movement from one psychic experience to another or from one mystical ecstasy to another. But in fact it is a movement in character from animality to purity, from egoism to impersonality." - Paul Brunton

Nature always amazes with the continually increasing complexity in all directions, there is no end to the grandeur. This is true in our lives as well since we imagine and are part of all we perceive. We move from lifetime to lifetime and moment to moment ever changing, and to imagine a conscious choice in our becoming is to hold the hand of ***. 

I don't like the words we have for ***, they are limiting and crooked, they miss the mark by a long shot so I am just going to use ***.  As the character develops, the movement from one perception to the next increases in awesomeness, my favorite big word, awesomeness. That is what the sunshine and the birdsong are, evidence of awesomeness.

Yesterday while considering how Sensei keeps finding more validation for her own understanding, I heard: "we don't need more people to talk about enlightenment, we need people doing it."

That sounds good to me.
She said it won't be easy but I asked to go along.
