Enjoy roses ... thorns are overrated!
“You cannot begin to understand the nature of mass events of any kind unless you consider the even greater framework in which they have their existence.
“A person’s private experience happens in the context of his psychological and biological status, and basically cannot be separated from his religious and philosophical beliefs and sentiments, and his cultural environment and political framework.
“All of the issues form together to make a trellis of behavior. Thorns or roses may grow therein. That is, the individual will grow outward toward the world, encountering and forming a practical experience, traveling outward from his center in almost vine-like fashion, forming from the fabric of physical reality a conglomeration of pleasant or aesthetic, and unpleasant or prickly events.”
(The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 801)
