We choose our reception.

Arrive with bitterness, or with benevolence and meet it.

He enjoys an atmosphere of increased benevolence, by virtue of composed and impartial study, who perceives in all matter and events, the dynamic and natural system of symmetry that cannot one a pebble cast without scratching the sky, or breeze through a meadow with his palm and not some distort after leave; the miraculous conversations of being are company plenty, and on that which his look last rests, resides he wholly there home and secure.

73: West

I took West my walk today, to be nigh the Sun as she dies behind the lime prairie. The East with its darker dominion presses a blue-violet engulf and nothing can tempt me thence hath not warmer magnanimity than even a failing Winter Sun, that toppling at last hath brought down with her wan, sections of oblivion’s curtain, shaking to attention the Eastern sentry Stars. Her lamenting vapoury aids assemble, and the woeful fray permits my furtive ascension upon the lavender smears to make a smuggled and diffident escape through tangerine tears, and survive a principle legacy;

that is to shine irreverently and unconditionally with all thy worldly might, a blinding and suffuse benevolence upon all beings and their conduct, just and unjust alike, before the night, as surely it will, envelops us all.
