You help yourself by helping others. There are no hermits in the desert unless they are thinking big thoughts that will eventually help others.
Edward De Bono, H+ A New Religion?
- “In H+ there is only a belief in the potential of yourself and in the potential of your fellow human beings.”
- “You have to contribute and make a difference. Being free of sin is not enough.”
- “Most religions focus on the ultimate ‘truth’. There seem to be different versions of this.”
- “After a while he took the word again: ‘Go thou then moonwards; on the great salt plain; So to a pillar. Adamant, alone, It stands. Around it see them overthrown, King, earl, and knight. There lie the questing slain, A thousand years forgotten–bone by bone. ‘No more is spoken–the tradition goes: ‘There learns the seeker what he seeks or knows,’ Thence–none have passed. The desert leagues may keep Some other secret–some profounder deep Than this one echoed fear: the desert shows Its ghastly triumph–silence. There they sleep. ‘There, brave and pure, there, true and strong, they stay Bleached in the desert, till the solemn day Of God’s revenge–none knoweth them: they rest Unburied, unremembered, unconfessed. What names of strength, of majesty, had they? What suns are these gone down into the West?”
- “Yet this desert is but one spot accursed in a world of bliss.”
