One cannot live in the pure present: it would consume us if care were not taken that is overcome quickly and thoroughly. But in the past one can live; in fact, only there can a life be arranged. One only has to fill every moment with experiencing and using, and it ceases to burn. And in all the seriousness of truth, listen: without It a human being cannot live. But whoever lives only with that is not human.*
When we only live in the present, without reflecting on the past or imagining the future, we never fully discover our heavy energy.
Heavy energy is more than the sum of our atoms and molecules, it cannot be measured in pounds or kilos of joules but is found where our deepest joy meets the world’s greatest need.
This will mean something different for each person, that’s the wonder of this life:
‘You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the should of the earth
I say to you that when you work you fulfilled a part of earth’s furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born […].’**
