With courage and a little insight we dive deeper into the richness of nonconceptual experience. It opens up the horizons and depths of experience to the inner peace and joy that money cannot buy. It is the fabric woven by love and insight. Sometimes just let go. Just let go and fly into the unknown richness of nonconceptual experience infused with love.
