"Enlightenment could be defined as the absence of resistance to what is, the total intimacy with whatever is taking place without any desire to reject or replace it; so intimate that there is no room for a self to separate itself out from the whole, to stand apart and look at the situation from the outside, to judge it as worthy or not worthy, good or bad, right or wrong, desirable or undesirable;  so intimate that there is no room, nor any time, in which a separate self could take refuge inside the body and so finds itself without boundaries or borders pervading the whole field of experience; so intimate that there is no 'me' on the inside and no object or other on the outside, but only seamless intimate experiencing; so intimate that there is no room for a 'self' and an 'other', a 'me' and a 'you', a 'this' and a 'that', a 'now' and a 'then'.  So utterly now and here that there is no time for time and no place for distance or space." ~ Rupert Spira
