Spirit Quest

Seeking Veracity



  WHICH PATH? (10/16/77)

There are two alternatives:  entertain self-destruction through grievous pre-occupation of an unwanted situation, or, try to "forget" or avoid confronting distasteful events through the mechanisms mentioned on page 44.  Love drives us toward the former and survival drives us to the later.

I think we have it in us to go on either path but that there is a natural propensity to follow the survival road.  It's more practical (a terrible word!) to sacrifice one's principles, one's fundamental loves, one's very fibers of personality and capitulate to survival in view of the alternative.

Well . . . . . . . we have dealt a severe blow to the conclusion on page 11 (3/12/77)!
