Have a Sacred Place

A sacred place is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a place, or a certain time, where you do not know what was in the newspapers that morning. You don’t know who your friends are. You don’t know what you owe to anybody. You don’t know what anybody owes to you, but a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. At first you may find that nothing’s happening there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, and take advantage of it, something will happen.
