Tools for Intentional Living & Transformation

To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,

You must go by way where there is no ecstasy.

In order to arrive at what you do not know

You must go by way which a the way of igorance.

In order to possess what you do not possess

You must go by the way of dispossession.

In order to arrive at what you are not,

You must go through the way in which you are not.

And what you do not know is the only thing you know.

And what you own is what you do not own,

And where you are is where you are not.

East Coker, Four Quartets

TS Eliot
