This gem by the great Nisargatta was posted at the NDS Digest:
"Do you know what I mean by peace?" he asked. "When you put a donut
in boiling water, a lot of bubbles will come out until all of the
moisture in the donut is gone. It also makes a lot of noise, doesn't
it? Finally, all is silent and the donut is ready. The silent
condition of mind which comes about through a life of meditation is
called peace. Meditation is like boiling the oil. It will make
everything in the mind come out. Only then will peace be achieved."
I hope you enjoy and benefit from it.
