We talk about two streams joining but actually, all streams join. Every tradition, every human being, every creed. But they don’t know this. This is why there is big turmoil in the world now. I don’t know but maybe it’s getting so bad it forces people to face this fact. It’s got to be really bad, then it forces people to look inside. It doesn’t seem like anything is working outside. And I think of all the new faces here and that’s the best place to be, just where you are.
