Sample text

If you flow with the stream, you are not going to know that the stream flows. The very statement that "all is flux" is a static statement, for it presupposes a stationary observer; it presupposes getting hold of something, trying to hold on to it, and then, as a result, observing the next moment that it is gone. This, Henri Bergson tells us, is the beginning of the great error of all Western metaphysics. This metaphysics takes the stream of reality and freezes it into a solid block (idealism) or into myriads of tiny Religions With Which I Have Been In Dialogue 21 particles (empiricism), turns it into something static and discrete.

No poets, no leaders, no songs, Yet we jump around totally wild .... Someone who sees you and does not laugh out loud, or fall silent, or explode in pieces, is nothing more than the cement and stone of his own prison .... Being is not what it seems, nor non-being. The world's existence is not in the world .... Inside water, a waterwheel turns. A star circulates with the moon. We live in the night ocean wondering, What are these lights? What I most want is to spring out of this personality, then to sit apart from that leaping.

Even if we speak of two people talking with each other, we imply an interhuman reality incomprehensible in terms of Aristotle's logic. If they were entirely other than each other, they could not talk, and if they were the same, they would not need to talk. Nor is it the sameness in each that speaks but one whole person to another, really other, whole person. Starting with trust as grounded in this paradoxical combination of separateness and relationship-arrows going apart and arrows corning together-we must recognize exile as inevitable.
