Silly things…

” ‘I just don’t like to see you waste your time on Silly things.’  He said. 
‘Well then,’ she said, ‘Close your eyes.’ ”

deep process…

“Sometimes, we do not notice a deep process when it comes up, or we don’t feel ready to deal with it, and that’s all right.  In the loving wisdom of our inner being, it will recycle and give us as many chances at it as we need.”

the same light…

“…I referred to the unparalleled complexity of the human group – all those races, those nations, those state whose entanglements defy the resourcefulness of anatomists and ethnologists alike.  There are so many rays in that spectrum that we despair of analysing them.  Let us try instead to perceive what this multiplicity represents when viewed as a whole.  If we do this we will see that its disturbing aggregation is nothing by a multitude of sequins sending back to each other by reflection the same light.  We find hundreds or thousands of facets, each expressing at a different angle a reality which seeks itself among a world of groping forms.  We are not astonished (because it happens to us) to see in each person the spark of reflection developing… ”
