Dissolving Form to Find Underlying Formlessness

Mutually Assured Discomfort: The Way to Life Eternal

It’s not going to be comfortable to leave behind cherished notions, ways of relating and thinking. But if it is not done then a Golden Calf (a false idol/form) will constantly be created every time that you find real gold.

The Spiritual Marketplace is Fool’s Gold
