“Todo ser humano é movido pela busca da felicidade. Buscamos a felicidade em todos os lugares. Com certeza você já ouviu dizer que a felicidade se encontra dentro de si mesmo. Felicidade é o que somos. Felicidade é a a nossa realidade maior e quando você experimenta essa realidade, todos os desejos desaparecem e você experiencia silêncio. Você se percebe como o sol doador de vida. Todas as perguntas cessam e você tem acesso a respostas para perguntas que nem mesmo fez.”

All questions cease and we have access to answers to unasked questions.”

I won’t die.
I won’t go anywhere.
I’ll be here.
But don’t ask me anything.
I won’t answer.
