A confession: By tolstoy


I have never understood Tolstoy and some other philosophers in their later stage of life. They do make some sense but I know that it is not going to help the totality. May be they are less problematic people but it is another corner of life that everyone need to consider about once even if they do not agree with it. It cannot help us today but why do such men who were so energetic is their past at last show such a mark of humility in the end?

At some point it may help to drop reading books for spiritual truth, or following what the other fellow has said.

True answers can also be found within, if the inner ground has been prepared. It doesn't take much more than purity, yearning, and a little time...
