"Pray do not send the boys away unless they wish to go." However, the doctor was inexorable. While we were speaking, Chico had stolen back to his corner.

The awakening, then, of your deeper self, which knows not habit and desires nothing but free correspondence with the Real, awakens you at once to the fact of a disharmony between the simple but inexorable longings and instincts of the buried spirit, now beginning to assert themselves in your hours of meditation pushing out, as it were, towards the light and the various changeful, but insistent longings and instincts of the surface-self.
