i could not have found a more better setting than Rancho Margot to read this book. here is an excerpt:
Poverty is to be completely free of society............greed, envy, anger, hate, jealousy, anxiety.........poverty becomes a marvellously beautiful thing when the mind is free of society. One must become poor inwardly for then there is no seeking, no asking, no desire, no-nothing! It is only this inward poverty that can see the truth of a life in which there is no conflict at all. Such a life is a benediction not to be found in any church or any temple.
