The happiness he finds in certain persons, events, things, or places may pass away with time or with them, and leave him feeling so empty that it is as if they had never been in his life, or as if they had appeared only in a dream. This is because he left them, where he found them--in the world of illusion--instead of bringing them where they become transformed--in the world of Reality.
