“Now when I speak to you I very seldom use such words as ‘love.’ I do not tell you that a God is waiting for you on the other side of a golden door.

“Someone like myself will come along and take off the comfort blankets – for after a while they hamper your development, where earlier they helped you grow. The fact remains, however: You do not have to die to find God. All That Is is now, and you are a part of All That Is now.”
