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 big admitting started, during an intense process of becomming aware and acceptance.
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 an undividable Wholeness… That One, which is not a one, revealed itself.
