Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"When the mind is kept away from its pre-occupations, it becomes quiet. If you do not disturb this quiet and stay in it, you find that it is permeated with a light and love you have never known; and yet you recognize it at once as your own nature. Once you have passed through this experience, you will never be the same man again; the unruly mind may break its peace and obliterate its vision; but it is bound to return, provided the effort is sustained; until one day when all bonds are broken, delusions and attachments end and life becomes supremely concentrated in the present."

-- Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic 'I am That', p 308
