There may come a time when in one's life, one remembers that one does not need anything at all. This may only remains a concept until it is experienced. I, for one, used to be dependant on others for many years, thinking and fearing that if let alone I could not keep up with everything that was in my life, in my experience. I have discovered, to my surprise, that the hardest challenge for me so far, has made it possible to experience the absence of need. This is quite new to me and even if I still clings to others and to possessions at time...I not only know, but experience the joy of being whole unto myself. When this experience happens to one it can be strange at first. I wondered if I had become indifferent to others but realised that this was not so. What became clear is that I became present to the possibility of freedom for everyone as well as compassion for everyone.
