People do make it

The path can seem long and hard, sometimes you can wonder if anybody really makes it to the end. So it’s good to hear of people who make it. I have a friend in New York, he’s been an enthusiastic friend for years. And he has often been in the worst trouble.
Today he wrote this to me.

I had started on wanting only God a few years back; what is very recent is my "seeing" that there's no "me," only God.  Man, what a  blast!  It's like while I'm doing it, there's really no "self," other than Him!  I feel no pain - hardly any physical sensations whatsoever - my mind slows down to an almost total stillness, and the peace, joy, gladness, and sense of well-being are enormous, that's something that in my over 41 years on the path, I had had only glances of!  The beauty of it is that I can extend that to almost all of my complete day now.  I am, as a result, much more tolerant, loving, forgiving, etc.  It's truly amazing!  (And most humbling!)  (And to think that this could have always been mine!)

Love, Angelo
