Hope and Fear

There is a complete relaxation when hope and fear are outshone. What basically are hope and fear? “Hope,” you could say, is the hope that we will attain open intelligence as some kind of destination, and “fear” is the fear that we won’t, and we are endlessly cycling in that. Even in a reified lifestyle, that’s what we’re looking for. We’re always looking for ultimate satisfaction and fulfillment delivered only by open intelligence. Whether we know it or not, the hope always is that we will find open intelligence, and the fear is that we won’t.
