Decades later when I would learn of the Zen mantra, "great doubt: great awakening; little doubt: little awakening; no doubt: no awakening," I could only smile knowing this simple truth had already transformed my life in so many ways. Buddha's admonition that one, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your common sense," had been a path I had instinctively followed. That very ethos had led me to a grand reunion with my original self, my authentic-self, my higher-self, my true soul, and my innermost beauty.
