'WHAT's your definition of sin, then?' The same as anyone's: whatever
I find someone unable to stop doing.
Next, you must trust your senses: they will show you nothing false if
your intelligence keeps you awake. Keep your eyes fresh and open and
joyful, and move with sure steps, yet flexibly, through the fields of a
world so richly endowed.
At such times the past lives on, and the future lives in advance, and the
moment is eternity.
And if in the end you have achieved this, and have come to feel
