Don’t keep yourself separate. Seeing a rose, become the rose. Seeing the sunset, be lost in it. Don’t remain aloof, cold. Don’t remain just a spectator, become a participant. Seeing the sky full of stars, become part of it, a small star. But participate in the dance.
To me that’s what religion is: dissolving oneself in the whole. Just as a river disappears into the ocean, you disappear into existence.
