. . . the chasm between his inner wisdom and its ultimate expression." Issac Bashevis Singer.
To aspire for inner understanding and wisdom is its own reward. The need, desire, impetus to express it can take much longer because if the soil and sunlight is not yet sufficient, the plant and flower will not open. The patience, dedication and aspiration it takes aligns with a timing all its own. Like a child thinking they are ready to drive just because they are sixteen yet their wise parent can see they need much more maturity and further development.
