' The Void '...


We have got to travel in the void and be happy about it…

All that we
know clearly is insufficient.

We must pass on to the unknown … at the
same time I think we make problems for us where there really are none.

There is too much conscious "spiritual life" floating around us, and we are
too aware that we are supposed to get somewhere.

Well, where?...

perhaps
we are already in that where.

… As for "spiritual life": our "Life in the
Spirit" is all-embracing, or it should be.
