Good and evil Then said one of the elders of the city, Speak unto us of good and evil. He replied: I can speak of your goodness, but not of your wickedness. For what is "evil"? Is it not only "good" that is afflicted by his own hunger and thirst? Indeed, when the "good" is hungry, he is willing to eat in the black hole, and when he is thirsty, he is willing to drink stagnant water. It is good when you are one with yourself. When you are not one with yourself, it is not "evil". Because a partitioned courtyard is not a den of thieves, but a partitioned courtyard. If a ship loses its rudder, it may drift aimlessly between the reefs without sinking to the bottom of the sea. It is good when you try to sacrifice yourself. When you think of self-interest, it is not "evil". For when you try to be selfish, you are but a root in the earth, sipping in the bosom of the earth.

It is not "evil" for you to go around and around. Even those who are lame do not walk backwards. But be alert, you who are valiant and swift, and do not stagger before the lame and think yourselves merciful. In innumerable things you are "good"; in the times when you are not good, you are not "evil.". You just linger and die. Pity the moose couldn't teach the turtle to run. When you ask for your "greater self", your goodness is hidden: This desire is in the heart of each of you. But for some people, this desire is to rush back to the sea, with the mystery of the mountains and the eulogy of the trees. For others, it is the slow-flowing stream that gets lost in the twists and turns, and stays on the way back to the sea. But let not those who desire the deeper say to those who desire the shallower, "Why are you so slow?" For the truly good do not ask the naked, "Where is your garment?" And do not ask the homeless, "How is your house?" Pray Then one of the crowns said, "Speak to us of prayer.". He replied: You always pray in times of sorrow or need, and I wish you to pray in times of fullness of joy and abundance. For is not prayer the unfolding of your ego in the living ether? If it is a comfort to pour out the night of your heart into space, it is a joy to pour out the dawn of your heart. If you cry only when your soul commands you to pray, she will encourage you again and again from your cry until you smile. When you pray,Stainless Steel Trough Urinal, you lift yourself up high, and in the air you meet those who pray at the same time as you, those you will not meet except when you pray.
