Nothing else holds a candle to life lived beyond self.

“At the very depth of our being we are inescapably drawn to the Absolute, even though there is nothing for either the ego or the self in it. That is why I say that the true impulse for Liberation is an irrational impulse—irrational to both the ego and self, because it will eventually mean the end of both of them. Of course, this all sounds quite negative until you remember that Liberation is to experience Life, Reality, and the true nature of God, without any medium. Strictly speaking this cannot be described, it must be lived. But I can assure you that nothing else holds a candle to life lived beyond self.”
