Suppose you wanted to reach the sun in a cart pulled by oxen – assuming there is a proper road from here to the sun for your oxen – how many thousands of years would it take you? If you were to go by boat on the cosmic ocean, it would take you almost as much time. If you were to take the train, you would get there faster.

If you were to take a plane, you would arrive even sooner. And if you were to travel at the speed of light, you would arrive in eight minutes and a few seconds.

What do these examples mean? That someone who travels in an ox cart, that is, who only uses the physical body’s means, the old methods to solve all problems, will only discover the truth thousands of years later. For someone who travels on water, that is, who walks at the speed of ordinary feelings, it will take almost as long.

Someone who travels by air, who, in other words, uses their intellect, will go faster. But someone who can travel via the spirit and intuition, moves at the speed of light and discovers the truth immediately.
