Because it will not be forever that the the peace will prevail. There will be times, as it is now, that I will find myself lost. You have a plan. I have a dream, unfortunately, and even more cowardly, as you call it, not a plan. Some day, suddenly out of a blue, you will put the plan forth, and I, with the extensive burden it would put on me, would succumb. I should not.
Let your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts. Psalm 119:173
And aren’t your precepts mine too?
Note: The post title is taken from a famous Sanskrit prayer from Brihadaranyaka 1:3:27; it means “lead me from darkness to light.”
