When you can see through the mist of Maya to the Self, the mist has not disappeared. You have just learned to see through it.  — Shyamananda

Knowing yourself.  As you experience presence the veil parts and you are able to know your world for the first time.  Yet to those around you everything looks the same.  Such is the nature of parting the veil of Maya.  We know who we are and nothing is ever quite the same again.  ~ Alain & Jody Herriott
