¡La he encontrado!
He encontrado el éxtasis quieto, esencia de toda Vida. 
No es un oscuro telón de fondo como imaginaba.
y tampoco una cortina o un cielo oscuro lleno de estrellas. 
Es un océano sutil de aire y luz —vivo—. 
Yo era un pez que no se daba cuenta del océano,
pero ahora veo el campo viviente en todas partes. 
Es inmóvil y quieto, y a la vez, el espacio de todas las cosas vivas. 
¿Cómo se puede explicar algo que no se puede ver de primera mano, pero se puede aprender a ver?
—Para esto naciste— te dice.
—Esta es la respuesta a la pregunta sobre tu Vida—
—Por favor, sigue—

I have found it!
I have found the deep bliss back of all Life.
It's not a dark backdrop as I imagined it;
Not a curtain or dark sky with stars, 
But a subtle living ocean with air and light.
I was a fish oblivious to the ocean. 
But now I see the all-pervading living field everywhere. 
It is unmoving and still, but it holds all living things.
How can you explain something that can't be really seen at first, but you can learn to see?
—This is what you were born to do—it tells you. 
—This is the answer to the question about your life—
—Please keep going—
