In a un-straight line
Seeking to reach the world... as if
The individual and society in an eternal unavoidable conflict.
Resolution is the only real problem in this situation
because resolution means that one side has lost.
And when one side loses,
the world goes sideways for awhile.
The individual fights for his values: the hero's path.
Society fights to establish common ideals.
The brave hero; the wise judge. This conflict keeps heroes and judges from turning into egoists-- from becoming criminals and dictators.
Everyone knows this fight, both in the heart and outside.
Day in day out.
The wisest words I've read in weeks or years. To hear intuition you must stop the conscious mind
