If you could just flick a switch and be in your living room right now without taking the journey I could not say anything. If you could leave, just like that, I couldn't say anything. I can't say anything. But if you cannot do that it is going to be entirely different, entirely different. The ideas and the concepts that you built and left behind are not going to exist there anymore: your professional career, your relation with your boss and with your secretaries and subordinates, your relationships to your so-called friends and so-called lovers.
We have to understand our territories, our levels of understanding and our reference points. At this point that reference point seems to be based on the idea of transcending the highest ideals of the human mind completely, which is called enlightenment. That is why it has been sajd that you cannot watch your own 33 burial. Once you dissolve, once your particular expectations dissolve, that is liberation, freedom, enlightenment. So we cannot congratulate ourselves on becoming the first buddha of the age or the first buddha of New York.

I forgot to discuss that point. The previous yanists built the road.
