A thousand oppressive fetters are shaken off. Now freely do I breath. I feel strong and with resplendent eyes I look around. I've stopped wanting to possess. I am free. Now I possess everything.

However, all spiritual methods seem to have this feature in common: besides being a method, they are also an anti-method, a method making an end to all methods. It's a mystical paradox that such an anti- method implies a method also.
