On the morning of February 5, 1997, Metta Zetty's understanding of the nature of Reality was profoundly changed by an extraordinary experience of spontaneous spiritual awakening.
"The spirit of man is inseparable from the Infinite, and can be satisfied with nothing less than the Infinite."
~ James Allen
"That which is essential is invisible to the eye."
~ Antoine de Saint Exupery
"There is in all visible things...a hidden wholeness."
~ Thomas Merton
"The fact is that because no one thing or feature of this universe is separable from the whole, the only real You, or Self, is the whole."
~ Alan Watts
The fundamental nature of this infinite wholeness has been described as:
- Advaita "Not-Two" (Vedanta)
- Dzog Chen "Natural Great Perfection" (Tibetan Buddhism)
- Kensho "The Essence of One's Being" (Zen Buddhism)
The essential nature of this Reality is revealed in a stunning, timeless moment of "Realization" or spiritual awakening:
"There is no greater mystery than this, that we keep seeking reality though in fact we are reality. We think that there is something hiding reality and that this must be destroyed before reality is gained. How ridiculous! A day will dawn when you will laugh at all your past efforts. That which will be the day you laugh is also here and now."
~ Siddhartha Gautama
