      To suffer the endless inanities of a Late Civilization gracefully
      and with poise requires unique coping skills that few of us
      evidently posses, considering the news is, every day, filled with
      stories of people who've reached their breaking point, unable to
      cope. Collectively all of us experience the pain of our culture
      becoming spiritually darkened with each successive generation,
      except some of us adapt better than others and are able to live, and
      even prosper, within the cultural wasteland. Perhaps they are the
      ones blessed with the ability of detachment; people who walk lightly
      upon the surface of earthly concerns, who, although they smell the
      wasteland, learn to live with the stench. Or perhaps a devil-may-
      care attitude blesses them with the extraordinary ability to live
      and let live, but also with a prudence to reject and deny. For, the
      strong, vital, healthy soul possesses a life force that is as sweet
      and undefiled as it is powerful and fierce. He allows, but he also
      denies. He embraces, but also strikes. He loves, but he also
      hates. Escaping into billowy clouds of universal acceptance is as
      untenable to him as spiraling into black, vile hatred. Somewhere in
      the middle, between these two extremes, a limitless power exists
      within him that is without bounds. This thaumeturgic power of his
      springs forth from the depths of his soul and unites his life force
      with the magical loveliness of heaven.
