tried by fire

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on journey, nothing, acclimating, seeing, transition, revelation, no self, tried by fire, love, bliss, come to rest, trust, beyond, beyond self, union, and julie sarah powell

This journey then, is nothing more, yet nothing less than a period of acclimating to a new way of seeing, a time of transition and revelation as it gradually comes upon "that" which remains when there is no self. this is not a journey for those who expect love and bliss, rather, it is for the hardy who have been tried by fire and have come to rest in a tough, immovable trust in "that" which lies beyond the known, beyond the self, beyond union and even beyond love and trust itself
