Sample text

Peaceful, harmonious, satisfying life. Family, affection, warmth, devotion, love and friendship in all their forms and variations. Could I possibly hope for more beauty, imagination, adventure in any novel and exciting form? My life is full to the brim. It overflows. It moves at the limits from one extreme to the other. It is gregarious and solitary, chaste and voluptuous, aesthetic and rational, organized and adventurous, gay and melancholy, serious and frivolous. But had this rapture not something of God, would I consent to hope for it?

Hope, light of life; hope, the fruit we carry within ourselves; hope, the measure of our fulfillment . . and yet, after I heard all this with open ears, I found myself disconsolately desperate. What can I, should I hope for? Whatever my imagination turns to are matters of life. I do not hope for any of them. There is, in fact, nothing I might wish for that is not already within my reach and even grasp. Peaceful, harmonious, satisfying life. Family, affection, warmth, devotion, love and friendship in all their forms and variations.

If we only knew what our life struggle amounts to in the great economy of creation, if we only knew the meaning of our life in the mosaic of humanity, if only we knew simply that there is a sense in the course of the history we take part in, then our existence would be easier to bear. And yet, not only are we denied this knowledge, but within our innermost being we also carry the hidden wound of our ignorance. How could it be otherwise? We may fool ourselves that the human apparatus, our senses and our reason, allow us to penetrate into all the hidden junctures among things, but the fact remains that if there were to be a final, clear explanation of even the smallest item of our worldly existence, the whole scheme of contingency would have to be exfoliated first.
