From the Nuradeen Magazine Vol. 2, No. 2 -- March/April 1982

the one sought are not separate, but one. What you seek is within
you. Most of what you encounter in the outward is only a hindrance
to fulfilling that inward yearning, to making that inward journey.
So you, reader, must look within yourself, not at me. These are only
some indications, a few sign posts along the way.
