Frits van der Ploeg - 1951
I was always searching, unaware of that I was looking for myself. Outside I was fearfully seeking happiness, approval, acceptation, sedation, salvation, 'good' feelings… and found disappointment.
The searching ended when, inside, I found a 'center' of freedom and spaciousness, where true nature, or impersonal Peace and Love lives. Then came the realisation that being (I am) is not an object, but the one 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.
