The deeper you go, the farther away are desires.
At the very center of your being, you completely forget that desires ever existed; they look like dreams, fantasies. That moment is the most exalted moment, the entry into oneself. Then you can come back to the surface but you cannot lose contact with the center. Then you remain centered even though you are on the circumference. Then all those waves are just games. One can act and play, beautifully and gracefully, but without any disturbance, without any tension, without any strain. One can remain in the marketplace and yet in tremendous silence. One can be in the crowd and yet be absolutely alone.
