We carry hell in our ideas of salvation. The idea that we would be saved from a punishment claiming other parts of our human family leaves us selfish and indifferent.
We carry war in our ideas of peace. The idea that we work for peace by imposing our will upon the world leaves bitter enemies who will not rest until they have broken our reign over them.
We carry unhappiness in our ideas of happiness.
The idea that happiness is something we do not have but must pursue, turns our own lives into a desert and turns our souls into tentless nomads.
