Even as the hands of a clock are powered from the
center, which remains ever still, so the universal
values remain ever at the center of human life, no
matter where the hands of time are pointing--past,
present, or future.
"That civilization perishes in which the individual thwarts the revelation of the universal."
"Most ignorance is vincible ignorance: We don't know because we don't want to."
-- Aldous Huxley
There is no getting away from problems in this life. You're either going to have the creative problems that come with realizing this vision of yours, or the neurotic problems that arise from the suppression of desire. Creative problems, or challenges, test you and spur you to your best. Neurotic problems are simply the murky water of suppressed desire. Let's face it, your deepest desires aren't going away. Talk to the people in nursing homes. See if many don't still have the idea of the thing they always to do but didn't. They are haunted by regret. Their desires didn't go away just because they didn't act on them. Your desire isn't going away either. Honor it, and do your best to give it expression. Keep coming back to it; feed it more and more attention. Let your desire become so strong that no fear from within or obstacle from without can stop your commitment to give your best."When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind."
