The Next Step from the Top of a 200 Foot-High Pole

     "Lost within the dependency on any structure is the sacred formless, infinitely available once form has been released.

     There is no bridge between form and the formless, and all form can ever do is establish a readiness to surrender to the formless.

     Is our present spiritual form ever going to let go of us? Will it ever say, 'Job well done, you are finished and ready for the formless,' or is that readiness going to have to come from us - with the understanding that the 'feeling of readiness' may not be part of what it means to be ready?"
