Truth Uttered and Cloaked.

“The opposite of every truth is just as true!  For this is so:  A truth can always only be uttered and cloaked in words when it is one-sided.  Everything is one-sided, everything half, everything is lacking wholeness, roundness, oneness.”

“Time is not real…. And if time is not real, then the distance that appears to lie between world and eternity, between suffering and bliss, between evil and good, is also an illusion.”

“In the deepest meditation we have the possibility of negating time, of seeing all life, all having-been, being, and becoming as simultaneous, and then everything is Brahman.  Therefore everything that is appears good to me.  Death appears to me like life, sin like holiness, cleverness like folly; everything must be just as it is, everything requires only my assent, only my willingness, my loving approval, and for me it is good and can never harm me.”

-Hesse “Siddhartha”
