My father, the father whose sight is the most shocking and the most unbearable for the wicked and the fainthearted; he is the father whose face removes all thoughts and doubts, whose glance robs the heart of all attachment to the mundane.

Knowledge of truth, the face of the father, is the most disturbing of all sights, for it is utterly other than anything we could ever expect or imagine. Its face shatters all illusions; then and only then one realizes the extent to which one is entangled in illusion; then and only then one sees for the first time, by a seeing never seen before, that the loftiest thoughts and ideas were none but figments of imagination, that spirituality was as worldly as the world itself. Truth transcends the world; it is beyond both spiritual and material prejudices.

One who sees the face of the father becomes the quietest of all beings; he is gone and will never return, for he knows that man and his world are identical with absolute oblivion and no more.
