Quiet

At some point in your growth, it becomes quieter inside. This happens naturally as you take a deeper seat within yourself. You then come to realize that though you have always been in there, you have been completely overwhelmed by a constant barrage of thoughts, emotions, and sensory inputs that draw on your consciousness.

This path leads you to absolute transcendence because any part of your being that would add a commitment to your happiness has got to go. If you want to be happy, you have to let go of the part of you that wants to create melodrama. In the end, enjoying life’s experiences is the only rational thing to do.
