“The holy instant is the interval in which the mind is still enough to hear an answer that is not entailed within the question asked. All questions asked within the world – all – are double questions, both asking and answering at the same time, ways of looking – ways of perceiving. A question asked in hate cannot be answered, because it is an answer in itself.
“The world asks but one question: “Which of these illusions is true? Which ones establish peace and offer joy? And which can bring escape from all the pain of which this world is made? No matter the question’s form, its purpose is the same – to keep you in your body and denying your reality as spirit. They ask: ‘What can the body get that you would want the most of all? It is your servant and also your friend. But tell it what you want, and it will serve you lovingly and well.’
