“What’s extraordinary is that the crucial thing we need for
breaking free is already inside us: our longing. And the voice
of our longing is repetition, insistently calling out to what’s
beyond anything we’re familiar with or even understand…

    As you start being drawn behind appearances you begin to
touch the bare bones of existence, to discover another reality
behind the scenes. And you can never take anything at face value
any more.

    You start to see the underlying principles behind events,
the basic patterns that keep repeating themselves time after
time; and the repetition begins to show itself in everything.
Instead of appearances being an obstacle, they help you on your
journey. And everything starts speaking with the voice of your
own longing.”
