Value


Which is worth more, a crowd of thousands,
or your own genuine solitude?
Freedom, or power over an entire nation?

A little while alone in your room
will prove more valuable than anything else
that could ever be given you.

Pete would say "would you rather be an orphan or a slave?"

There is something very comforting about this. It is like 'there is nothing I need do'- it just frees me of the ego push 'to do' something and opens a door to what wants to happen next.
