Peter Matthiessen: "Already the not-looking-forward, the without hope-ness takes on a subtle attraction . . . With the past evaporated, the future pointless, and all expectation worn away, I begin to experience that now that is spoken of by the great teachers . . . There is no hope anywhere but in this moment . . . This very day is an aspect of nirvana, which is not different from samsara but, rather, a subtle alchemy, the transformation of dark mud into the pure white blossom of the lotus . . . perhaps . . . the journey . . . step by step and day by day, is the Jewel in the Heart of the Lotus, the Tao, the Way, the Path . . ."
