A Distaste for Unity
All of us must be lonely. The only reason we bring ourselves alongside others is because we are lonely. People cannot make it on their own. We cannot make it on our own because we are not our own. The lonely man tears the joy out of himself, while those of unity tear the joy out of others. That sounds terrible, but is it not true? The choice between satisfaction and morality - morality loses. Who gives up quicker, the lonely man or those of unity? Until I see God, I will be lonely. I may not always feel lonely, but until my soul separates from the flesh, and until I see God, I will not be entirely separated from loneliness. Unity is a chorus of birds, and loneliness is the nest that they abandoned.
