The door to the heart opens on the realization that the ground of our being, the essence of who we are, is formless. All else is congealed energy. “Our bodies are like prisons,” said Einstein, “and I look forward to be free, but I don’t speculate on what will happen to me. I live here now, and my responsibility is in this world now.”
How appears the world to a man whose heart is full of joy?
“I gang my own gait and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties I have never lost an obstinate sense of detachment, of the need for solitude–a feeling which increases with the years.” Albert Einstein
The state of the world is not a problem. Fear of the state of the world—that is the problem.
A problem cannot be solved at the level of the problem. Fear cannot fix what fear has created.
Ancients understood fear as the ‘knowledge’ of good and evil. It’s why we have war.
