Frits van der Ploeg - 1951
I was always searching. Outside I was seeking happiness, approval, 'good' feelings, salvation… and found disappointment. There came recognition of the great Yearning, of that I was looking for Peace.
The search ended in the discovery of an inner 'center' of spaciousness and freedom, where inside and outside evaporate, where true nature, or impersonal Peace and Love lives. Then came the realisation that being (I am) is not an object, but the one self-luminous Awareness…
It was totally clear that all appearances are not separate from each other, but one undividable Wholeness… That which is not a one revealed itself.
