On the morning of February 5, 1997, Metta Zetty's understanding of the nature of Reality was profoundly changed by an extraordinary experience of spontaneous spiritual awakening.

In this astonishing and euphoric epiphany (spiritual realization), Metta experienced a sudden and direct insight into the essential wholeness, completeness and perfection of Reality -- exactly as it is.

The insight born from this spiritual awakening is your own natural birthright -- and you are invited to join in discovering this Open Secret as it is revealed within the spacious background of your own innate Natural Awareness.

"The spirit of man is inseparable from the Infinite, and can be satisfied with nothing less than the Infinite."
~ James Allen

"That which is essential is invisible to the eye."
~ Antoine de Saint Exupery

"There is in all visible things...a hidden wholeness."
~ Thomas Merton

"The fact is that because no one thing or feature of this universe is separable from the whole, the only real You, or Self, is the whole."
~ Alan Watts

The fundamental nature of this infinite wholeness has been described as:
- Advaita "Not-Two" (Vedanta)
- Dzog Chen "Natural Great Perfection" (Tibetan Buddhism)
- Kensho "The Essence of One's Being" (Zen Buddhism)

The essential nature of this Reality is revealed in a stunning, timeless moment of "Realization" or spiritual awakening:
"Wonder of wonders! This very enlightenment is the nature of all beings, and yet they are unhappy for lack of it!"
~ The Buddha's exclamation at the moment of his enlightenment

"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

"You are all Buddhas There is nothing you need to achieve. Just open your eyes."
~ Siddhartha Gautama
