On No-ego & No-self, from Jeff’s Foreword to Bernadette Roberts’ What Is Self?: A Study of the Spiritual Journey in Terms of Consciousness.
"When man is at his very extremity and still goes on striving with his whole being, without stopping, the moment to break through suddenly comes to him. This is the moment of fundamental change when one is reborn as a True Self. It is as if a candle were lighted in the darkness. Darkness is at once illumined."
Zenkei Shibayama, The Gateless Barrier
