The Anthem of Humanity
The Vision: Reflections on the Way of the Soul (1994)
Context: I have existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end.

I listened to the teachings of Confucius, imbibed the wisdom of Brahma, and sat beside Buddha beneath the tree of insight. And now I am here, wrestling with ignorance and unbelief. I was on Sinai when Yahweh shed his effulgence on Moses; at the River Jordan I witnessed the miracles of the Nazarene; and in Medina I heard the words of the Messenger to the Arabs. And here I am now, a captive of confusion.

„Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy.“

—  Ludwig Wittgenstein Austrian-British philosopher 1889 - 1951

Context: There are two godheads: the world and my independent I.

A man who is happy must have no fear. Not even in the face of death.
Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy.
