a lesson learned

a lesson learned

Quite often, as life goes on, when we feel completely secure as we go on our way,
we suddenly notice that we are trapped in error,
that we have allowed ourselves to be taken in by individuals, by objects,
have dreamt up an affinity with them
which immediately vanishes before our waking eye;
and yet we cannot tear ourselves away,
held fast by some power that seems incomprehensible to us.
Sometimes, however, we become fully aware and realize
that error as well as truth can move and spur us on to action.
Now because action is always a decisive factor,
something really good can result from an active error,
because the effect of all that has been done reaches out into infinity.
So although creative action is certainly always best,
destroying what has been done is also not without happy consequence.
