Every soul is inviable.
Any thought can be private.
The deepest goal is to
Find sanctity’s source.
The body may be ravaged and hacked into pieces, but the mind must never be invaded. It is only when we permit other to influence us that our us that our minds may be entered*. Evil may thrive on enslaving us physically, emotionally, or mentally, but it can do so only by deception. That is why we must remember the sanctity of our own souls. Our thoughts are private. As long as we are determined, evil cannot sway us. People think that others can read minds or that the gods watch our every movement. No master, no psychic, no god can enter our inner gate if we choose not to let them in.
By withdrawing into the sanctity of our souls, we can also know ourselves. This effort cannot be carried forth by others. If can only be accomplished through the self-effort of living and engaging in ongoing contemplation. Only we can enter the most sacred core of our beings and find the secrets of life.
