It is better to do the wrong thing whole-heartedly than the right thing half-heartedly. Earnestness is the key. “The fool who persists in his folly will become wise,” promised the mystic William Blake.
Projection is perception. Thus, everyone I see represents an aspect of myself. Do I judge you? I judge myself. Do I harm you? I harm myself. We create the world we live in.
In order to see, we cannot judge. Judgement veils vision. Clarity is charity.
The sole work of the inner journey is the removal of obstacles. First among these is the small clutch of ideas we hold about ourselves. William Blake called these mental concepts “mind-forg’d manacles.”
Man’s principal confinements are habit and memory.
