    This is it!
    This -- the immediate, everyday, and present experience --
    is IT, the entire and ultimate point for the existence of
    the universe.		Alan Watts
    			This Is It, p. 11
    There is no greater mystery than this, that we keep seeking
    reality though in fact we are reality.  We think that there
    is something hiding reality and that this must be destroyed
    before reality is gained.  How ridiculous!  A day will dawn
    when you will laugh at all your past efforts. That which
    will be the day you laugh is also here and now.
    			Ramana Maharshi
    The moment of awakening may be marked by an outbursts
    of laughter, but this is not the laughter of someone who
    has won the lottery or some kind of victory.  It is the
    laughter of one who, after searching for something for
    a long time, suddenly finds it in the pocket of his coat.
    			Thich Nhat Hanh
    			Zen Keys, p. 44
    Than knowledge of This there is nothing else.
    Other than This no one can know.
    It is This that is read and This that is meditated.
    It is This that is discussed in the treatises and
         old legends.
    There is no school of thought that does not
         take This as its aim.
