“We continue to be confronted with what is truly called the Great Work: living the truth we know. Against what seems to be an organized opposition, man must live outwardly his inner convictions. The proof of his sufficiency however is not that he conquers the world, but that the world doesn’t conquer him. This is his initiation. He shall not become a God among men, but rather a man among beasts.”
