Solitude is not something
one hopes to have in the future.
Rather, it is a deepening of what is in the present.
If you do not look for it in the present
you will never have it
Mind speaks to mind
with spoken or written words.
When heart speaks to heart
it is with words unspoken and unwritten.
Imagination helps one see
further than the eyes see
and hear sounds
fainter than ears can detect.
The mystical task

is not to feel secure,
but to be able to tolerate insecurity.
As aging continues,
insecurity makes a greater contribution
to the process than it did before.
One may fail as an original thinker
simply because his memory is too good.

and require that the unconscious feed the muse.
This may require that
one perceives unity in the roaring of the winds
and the quiet song of of a tranquil pool.
How will you keep the fires in the hearth
burning with the flames of creativity?
By seeking through spirit effort
for kindling to ignite.
On character …
without knowledge of
or the ability to forge
laws of right conduct
you will not forge your character.
All That Is
is a result of universal creativity.
There is nothing dead in Nature.
you will forever feel disconnected
… or alone.
