Borrowed this back from Don:

"When you perceive the truth, you will become totally free from desire or hope. One who is endowed with supreme dispassion drives away the goblin of illusion. He is not pleased by pleasure, he is not troubled by troubles. The twin-forces of attraction and aversion do not even touch him. He looks upon all with equal vision.
“Free from the least attachment he enjoys whatever comes to him unsought, even as the eyes perceive their objects without desire or hate. Such experiences do not therefore produce either joy or sorrow in him. Even though he appears to be engaged in the performance of appropriate actions in this world, his consciousness is not disturbed in the least. Whatever may befall him in accordance with the laws of time, space and causation, whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, he remains inwardly undisturbed.”

Thanks for the reminder Dan. An excellent one. From Santa Fe, I believe. In any case, it's truth awaiting our sweet embrace.
