I love to take a walk at night. I hear the crickets in beautiful harmony. I hear an owl in a tree not far from me. The moon is bright and beckoning. Overhead I see the red and green flashing lights of an airplane descending into the local airport. Venus is bright and from here it doesn’t look that far away but of course it is. When we think we are close to some form of enlightenment or understanding, we must remember we are as far away as we are from Venus. Whether we get there or not is not as important as whether we make the effort to do so.
