As I take off to the Convention, I leave everything I have in this world at home in order to come to a place of unification, to be born there in a new life. There is no place to run, the ways back are cut off, with no connection to the world. The world does not exist.
We need to prepare for such a state. I plan to spend these days precisely and only in this manner. I don’t think about anything else but this.
At home, at work, at the bank, and at the store, I prepare everything so that I wouldn’t have to think about anything over the course of these three days, as if flying to Mars with a one-way ticket. Nothing is keeping me here anymore; the bridges have been burned.
