I have found, through years of contemplation and subsequent realization, something which I will describe as enlightenment. The highest secret of all, the most prominent truth, is within our capability. It is an act, it is a change which propels our lifes onto another stage of existance. This transition, or transcendence, begins when one embrace altruism. Altruism is when the self becomes aware of its intimate connection with the cosmos, and subsequently finds out, that in order to be one with the cosmos, one must give up oneself, and give oneself to the highest authority in the universe, which is to me, that path, also called Tao (pronounced; Dao).
