I've been reading a book by John Gray and he argues that those who believe humankind have progressed morally and spiritually are in error. I have thought that for a long time and I have come to the conclusion that there is not likely ever to be much progress in that sense. And, nevertheless, we go on planting the vegetables, sitting in the sun, quietly, drinking our tea and working against the violence and cruelty however we can, realizing that whatever we do, the sun will still rise. As Belden Lane wrote, nature is indifferent to our cruelties. In the long run, the world will go on, with us or without us . . . and I for one find some hope in that.
