Commentaries on Living Series I | Chapter 32 'Separateness'

We may study history and translate historical fact according to our prejudices; but to be certain of the future is to be in illusion. Man is not the result of one influence only, he is vastly complex; and to emphasize one influence while minimizing others is to breed an imbalance which will lead to yet greater chaos and misery. Man is a total process. The totality must be understood and not merely a part, however temporarily important this part may be.
The sacrificing of the present for the future is the insanity of those who are power-mad; and power is evil, These take to themselves the right of human direction; they are the new priests. Means and end are not separate, they are a joint phenomenon; the means create the end. Through violence there can never be peace; a police State cannot produce a peaceful citizen; through compulsion, freedom cannot be achieved. A classless society cannot be established if the party is all-powerful, it can never be the outcome of dictatorship. All this is obvious.

Truth will unfold itself for those who enquire their own actions and only to them and for them and to or for no one else.

As obvious as this poem lines from Martin Bril:

"You're missing more
Then you experience."

from Credo

Truth will unfold itself for those who enquire their own actions and only to them and for them and to or for no one else.
