Hours of Solitude

Think of the world that you carry within you, and call this thinking whatever you like.  Whether it is memory of your own childhood or longing for your own future-just be attentive towards what rises up inside you, and place it above everything that you notice round about.  What goes on in your innermost being is worth all your love, this is what you must work on however you can and not waste too much time and too much energy on clarifying your attitude to other people.
