By Ronald de Sousa

While we in general deem ourselves better to different species, the good judgment of usual choice are not lead us to anticipate that nature does every thing for the easiest. equally, rational motion doesn't consistently advertise the very best results.

Die word klingt, um zu vergehen. Ein Ton, der an sich festhalten könnte, wäre ein grausamer, ein überaus quälender Ton. Er würde (sich) nicht daran erinnern, dass er selbst der göttlichen Natur entspringt – einer Komposition, deren Ursprung durch diese göttliche Musik zum Vorschein kommt.
In diesem Augenblick sind alle Galaxien, ist aller Raum und alle Zeit von etwas erfüllt, was once keiner Galaxie entsprungen ist, was once nicht aus dem Raum und nicht aus der Zeit kommt, sondern used to be all das zum Vorschein kommen lässt, um es von innen heraus wirklich sein zu lassen. used to be das ist, werden wir niemals wissen. Aber es zeigt sich uns, um sich selbst daran zu erinnern, dass es in jeder shape und zu allen Zeiten und in allen Räumen ein vollkommener Ausdruck seiner selbst ist. Eben deshalb ist bereits alles gesagt, wobei es nur jetzt gesagt wird und nur jetzt gesagt werden kann. Es kann nur jetzt gelesen, gehört, erkannt und vernommen werden.
