“We are going to talk a bit about spiritual restlessness, but the first thing we need is creative comprehension.

In life, it is fundamental to know oneself. Where do we come from? Where are we going to? What is the objective of existence? Why do we live? What do we live for? The phrase at the entrance of the temple of Delphi which read “Nosce Te Ipsum” (and which means “Man, know yourself and you will know the universe and its Gods”) is axiomatic.
