„That’s – practical!“ „Why, that’s – interesting!“ How many things do we allow into our lives simply because our mind declares them to be „practical“, and in so doing remove ourselves again a little further from inner contact with the world? How many things let us drift completely into the external just because our mind declares them to be „interesting“?To find something „interesting“ and „practical“ without inner guidance is „To let one’s ego take the lead and thus to focus on the struggle for survival and to want to fight lonely. And to do so with pleasure.“ Because „practical“ means „avoiding pain“ and „interesting“ prepares with knowledge joyfully for the next fight.
To find something „interesting“ and „practical“ under inner guidance is to use the ego to add something to the world for the increase of light. And to do this in the clearest and holiest and most refreshing rejoicing peace.
