Each person is created with the tools it takes to master his or her own life. But self-mastery remains the ultimate mystery until that day dawns when — weary of struggling to overcome what he blames for his conflicted self — he lets go and enters into this darkened nature by becoming completely still. And by this stillness, he tames its wildness; and through this stillness he is given dominion over all that moves in the kingdoms of earth.
