  • And what did I want from my life?

    he asked.

    I had to think about it for only a short time,

    considering the weight of the question.

    To love, I said.

    To feel profound love for myself and all others.

    To feel the barriers that separate us dissolve in a blaze of light

    and to know the oneness completely.

    This is what I wanted of my life.

    Only this.
