What if attaining clarity were only the first step in fully experiencing our lives? Becoming clear
means seeing clearly the work we can do in this life. Turning towards ourselves to obtain freedom
will inevitably turn us back to everything else. Realizing interdependence, we recognize our
obligations to the world.
