Youth and freedom are connected with the birth of the awakened state of mind. The awakened state has the quality of morning, of dawn—fresh and sparkling, completely awake. Having identified ourselves with the path of dharma and the proper attitude toward the path, we suddenly discover that there is something beautiful about it. The path has a freshness to it that contrasts sharply with the monotony of going through a program of various practices. New discoveries are being made.
