which it appropriates its history.

for the selection of what is essential.
Everything that we do in studying the history of philosophy
ultimately serves their better understanding.

an order of life in regulated channels which connects
individuals in a technically functioning organisation,
but not inwardly from the historicity of their souls.

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.

Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.

Find your song and sing it out.
Find your cadence and let it appear like a dance.

The answers that you are content to not know.
