Note:– Below are the opening paragraphs of Chapter 1 of The Milk Is White:
“The Truth, with reference to the purpose of human life on Earth, is like a pyramidal mountain. As we seek the truth we climb this mountain on all sides, on varying paths, with each path suiting our individual needs and this is not an easy trek because we are wearing lead soled boots and heavy clothing acquired in the past that we will gradually shed as we ascend. This trek is like one we would encounter in a tropical jungle which is full of clinging vines, protruding roots, is sometimes slippery underfoot, and has gullies and cliffs we can fall down, as well as beautiful birds, flowers and scenery. Often we have to hack our way through obstacles, toil up and down slopes and may suffer cuts, sprains, bruises and broken bones. At times we may have to stop to rest or we may feel like giving up.
Along the way there are many springs for us to quench our thirst for knowledge and all are from the same source within the mountain. As we climb we experience the Truth from our peculiar standpoint at the time. However, since there can be only one ultimate truth, when we reach the top we all come to the same pinnacle of knowledge and state of being.”
