      Yes, the process of moving
      closer to Reality may be seen
      as passing through 70,000
      veils, or the layers of an onion
      (I don't know why that one is
      used so much...maybe somthing
      about tears (ΓΌ)....

      but...

      After 69,999 (veils or an
      exceptionally dense onion)
      comes the final layer, the
      final veil...

      and ThaThaThaThat's All Folks.

      Reality is perceived, experienced,
      understood as IT, IS, Source.,
      God, Perfect Peace of Mind,
      The complete and total clarity
      of the unified Reality.

      There is a romantic notion,
      however, that Total Clarity,
      Realization....is not possible
      for the human. In virtually all
      of the consciousness traditions
      and spiritual models, there is
      a favorable and respected view
      of the "aspirant", the one on
      her way, the one who is peeling
      his onion faithfully...

      But those who report such
      an event as making it or
      being guided past
      all 70,000 veils, layers,
      illusions, as an experiential
      Understanding of Reality
      will hear from angry
      "fundamentalists" (of many
      stripes) that we mortals
      cannot fathom the entire
      Reality (God, Universe...).

      Yet, The Masters say they have
      and the earnest aspirant can.
