– that each person must strive to write: themselves

“Human beings can be compared to a book they themselves are writing – and often it’s just scribblings and gibberish! You can find every insanity, every aberration in it. And when two of these books meet and feel attracted to one another, there they are, busy day and night reading one another, but what do they learn from their reading?
Certainly, humans know many things, but they have still not learned how they should write their own book. They only know how to create outside themselves: how to sculpt, model, draw or write, but always outside themselves; their inner being remains fallow ground. It is time they became aware that they must concern themselves with writing their own book. Then, whenever they meet, they will marvel at being able to see sublime writing and drawing in one another – the qualities, virtues and gifts they have each worked to develop in themselves.” Omraam Mikhael Aïvanhof
