Anything that you do out of fear and greed is bound to be wrong because fear and greed are unconscious states. Out of fear you have dreamed about hell, out of fear you have dreamed about heaven. There is no hell, no heaven. These are all your dreams. When you are not dreaming at all, when the sleep has disappeared and you are awake, there is no heaven, no hell. That state Buddha calls "liberation " — liberation from greed, liberation from fear.

This is quite wonderful - I have fear around where you have disappeared to, Grant. Maybe I dreamed that you are my friend.
