/ When asked what Enlightenment felt like, the Master said, ‘It is like going into the wilderness and suddenly feeling that you are being watched.’
‘By rocks and trees and mountains.’
‘An eerie feeling.’
‘No, a comforting one. But because it is unfamiliar, one feels the urge to rush back to the commonplace world of people – their noise, their words, their laughter – which has cut us off from nature and Reality.’ /
~ Anthony de Mello, Awakening
