Thanks for this great post. I've just discovered Burroughs and so much of what he wrote rings true for me. Here's my favorite excerpt form his "Accepting the Universe":

“I want nothing less than a faith founded upon a rock, faith in the constitution of things. The various man-made creeds are fictitious, like the constellations Orion, Cassiopeia’s Chair, the Big Dipper; the only thing real in them is the stars, and the only thing real in the creeds is the soul’s aspiration toward the Infinite.”

Yes, and all the soul has to see is that it IS the infinite. Bring it back to this-here-now. Nothing to eventually see or be. Nothing that hasn't always been. Always this moment is here to be seen. Where else, what else could the infinite be?

oh yes indeed. what else could all of 'this' be...but simply just THIS.

and where else could 'the infinite' be, but right here and right now, and everywhere and everywhen.
