Alan Watts Says: “The startling truth is that our best efforts for civil rights, international peace, population control, conservation of natural resources, and assistance to the starving of the earth—urgent as they are—will destroy rather than help if made in the present spirit. For, as things stand, we have nothing to give. If our own riches and our own way of life are not enjoyed here, they will not be enjoyed anywhere else. Certainly they will supply the immediate jolt of energy and hope that methedrine, and similar drugs, give in extreme fatigue. But peace can be made only by those who are peaceful, and love can be shown only by those who love. No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”
Wanner jy in die onbekende staar. Wanner jou inner stem skree, onthou groot goed is net eenvoudig n kombinasie van klein goedtjies. Minute is maar net sekondes. Programme is maar net prosesse. Die berge bestaan maar net uit klippies. Sukses is wanner jy aan kan hou terwyl die rest van die wêreld op gee.
