Thankyou, Tony, for another moving and reflective piece. When I find myself in fear and loathing, I remember the following passage from the gospel of Thomas:
“Bring forth what is within you, and what you bring forth will save you. Do not bring forth what is within you, and what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
I know this to be a spiritual truth. And today I am thankful for a great mind which has, beyond any doubt, kept me alive.
