Continuing from A New Earth . . .

When you don’t cover us the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that we lost a long time ago when humanity, in stead of using thought, became possessed by thought. A depth returns to your life. Things regain their newness, their freshness. And the greatest miracle is the experiencing of your essential self as prior to any words, thoughts, mental labels, andimages. For this to happen, you need to disentangle your sense of I, of Beingness, from all the things it has become mixed up with, that is to say, identified with. This disentanglement is what this book is about.
