“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.”—Hermann Hesse
Happiness does not come from manipulating the environment to our liking, that is why our society is decaying and collapsing from the inside out, the signs of this are being hidden of course, but the point is when mankind decided to regard himself above nature, which is absurd because mankind is intrinsically a part of nature, he cut himself off from the eternal wellspring of love of existence. Happiness is learning that all things were already the way they were supposed to be. We changed the world to what we thought we wanted but now people are beginning to realize that this world is not what we wanted at all. What we really wanted, we already had long ago but we were manipulated into thinking we needed all these things to complete us. We are already complete, perfect, divine beings and nothing can ever change that. But through allowing ourselves to be indoctrinated by this materialistic society we have squashed our inner flames of light. The longer we buy into this game, the longer we prolong the suffering of ourselves, our children, and their children to come.
