What There Is, Is Ecstasy // Willow Lakes, Eagles Nest Wilderness, Colorado
Here, this, is It. The world as it is, is Heaven, I'm looking for a Heaven outside what there is, it's only this poor pitiful world that's Heaven. Ah, if I could realize, if I could forget myself and devote my meditations to the freeing, the awakening, and the blessedness of all living creatures everywhere I'd realize what there is, is ecstasy.
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums
It's a lot easier to realize this in a place like the Gore Range.
