Last year I had a brain hemorrhage…When times 2 War: A Call to Inner Life were tough, the following words have given me hope and a sense of purpose. I hope they inspire you too. This is the true joy of life: being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to others, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for them whatever I can.
Such a resolve commands respect. Very well; whoever wants to do that should go ahead, and I pray that such an undertaking may help a little. For myself, I refuse to mount the machines of hell. I will board the ship that shows all humankind the way to the other shore, which is not yet discovered. It is the Kingdom of peace, justice, and perfect love. We need people who dare to set the course for this other shore, who dare to discover it, who dare to live in accordance with the ways of the land on the other side.
This task is not to help all of humankind a little; it is not to improve some institution, not to abol ish a particular kind of killing. All this is good and necessary, too. Yet the most important task for you and me is this: to take a step forward, in our own personal lives, from animal to human being. Hermann Hesse in Salt and Light If the waiting must be endless, if there is to be no fulfillment, then it is not wisdom to look and wait. We should become like those…who say that there is no truth, and that the only wise men are those who spend their lives in discovering and exposing the lies that have been believed in the world.
