the heart of it

Citizenschallenge-v.3 - 15 February 2018 10:48 AM

It occurred to me on my morning walk with Maddy,
that one of the important things Hermann Hesse can be credited with is enunciating the “life examined.” 

Through his novels and parables he showed one man’s way,
and made it okay for many to place the spiritual, the inner, the pursuit of experiences and personal knowledge the center of one’s priorities. 

That was rather revolutionary and of course he wasn’t the only of the era, but he did it better than most.

No wonder the establishment would abhor such thinking and the man who dared share it.
