Letter: 4/Reason is Necessary but Not Enough

        beloved bhakti,

    Love. Reason is not enough.
    It is necessary but not enough.
    The Beyond must be remembered.
    And always.
    Because reason in itself is destructive.
    Alone it is nothing but a cutting weapon.
    It creates man--anti-all, and pro-nothing.
    It creates absolutely negative minds, which can criticize, but
cannot create.
    Because, reason has no healing force within itself.
    It is only a tiny part and not the WHOLE of life, and the
healing force is always with the WHOLE.
