“For all of us have a basic, intuitive feeling that once we were whole and well: at ease, at peace, at home in the world; totally united with the grounds of our being; and that then we lost this primal, happy innocent state and fell into our present sickness and suffering.

And this will be the miracle, the millennium.”
