We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible.

If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.
You can love me or hate me and disagree with me, but you sure as hell know where I stand.
Know or listen to those who know.
