The inner harmonization

The inner harmonization, the opening of the heart to humanity, is the main thing––and it must open to all humanity. This is no retreat, but a rejection of the partial judgment on humanity that is characteristic of social theories. The artist goes past that. Strindberg once said, “All politicians are one-eyed cats. Some see with the right eye, some see with the left eye, but the artist sees with two eyes at once.”
