Throw your dreams into space like a kite

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” Anais Nin

“Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him.”

James Craig Annan, The Dark Mountains, 1890

The man, who, being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not,

as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and

encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully

and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass

courageously through it. Only to the extent that man exposes himself over and over again

to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him.

In this lies the dignity of daring.
