see. It is a myth that there is a point of destination. There isn't. There
are only relative points, temporary points. The realization of your true
nature is the end of not knowing who and what you are, and thereby seeing
what everyone else is too. When you awaken, you know you are the infinite
presence, but this is not the end in any absolute sense. It is the beginning
of another mysterious unfolding. It's the beginning of something without
