A lot of the time in this project, i will be wrestling with the idea of synthesis (of self, identity, heuristic process etc). I read this quote below at Baba’s ‘thought for the day2 (15.6.07, website) and wish to record it for future use and reminder:

“When obstacles come in your way, face them with courage. They harden you and make you mentally tough. Suffering and misery are inescapable acts of the Cosmic drama. God does not decree these calamities, but man invites them by way of retribution for his evil deeds. This is the corrective punishment meted out by nature, which induces man to give up the wrong path. All this is part of the grand synthesis in which the negatives serve to glorify the positives. Thus, death glorifies immortality; ignorance glorifies wisdom; misery glorifies bliss; night glorifies dawn.”
