December 18, 1979
An individual enters a city, and that city has many streets and alleys, and he keeps on walking the streets and alleys of that city.
He sees that everything is very difficult. He sees that the streets are very narrow, and that the people bump into each other. He has no idea of traffic. He doesn’t know who goes that way, who comes this way, who goes in all directions. And he tries to organize that city. But, as he is unable to see everything, he stops and then says, “Well, on this street we’ll all walk this way and on the other we’ll all go that way, and here only this way…”
And after a while, he sees it didn’t work, because it would cause trouble on the other side. And he starts to despair and wants to find a way out. But he tried something!
You too have always been trying something in life. Everyone tries something in their lives. Everyone tries! But, after a while, feeling that you won’t be able to organize things so that you live better, you search for a way out. And then you go desperately looking for a way out, and then you run down one street and find no way out, you run down another and find no way out, and find no way out…
One day you end up finding the way out and you leave the city, go on the road once again and leave.
But, if the fact keeper weren’t faulty, if the fact keeper were perfect, then you would have learned the lesson well. And walking along the road, when finding another city, you wouldn’t enter it so haphazardly. You would stop at the city doors, look for a hill, a rise, because your fact keeper would have registered the previous experience and would have taught you that you must base yourself on previous experiences, and must always be alert to use your mind better, for if you don’t, you will always be stumbling around.
So you would then climb a hill before entering the city. You would look, from the top of the hill, at all the streets and alleys of the city. You would observe how everything works in that city. You would look, analyze and then, before going down to the city, you would look for the way out, see how to get out of there.
Then, knowing all about it, you would enter the city, and even choose the location that pleased you most. You would live there the time you needed to get nourishment before going back on the road. So you would go down, eat, try to help organize – since you know better, for you have seen from above. And after you had undergone all the required nourishment, you would easily go back and find the way out. You would walk through the exit, find the road and follow the road: the road of evolution, until you find a new city.
All this would be normal to happen, to any person that starts to better value his own mind, that has begun to correct the flaw that exists in the keeper of the facts already registered. And the fact keeper is broken in most people. And they don’t know, then, that they must climb the hill before going on.
And they have every opportunity.
