The Next Step


What is the next step? I came across the idea in Sufism and as far I can recollect it signifies the natural opening up of the path that brings us out of the dead impasse of practices which have lost their vitality and are stale arid unprofitable. Good, fine, splendid, yes but what if choice is likely to be of the wrong thing that leads into some other egoic redoubt. I am thinking here of Buzzatti’s fabulous fort in The Tartar Steppe - the next steppe. Quite!

Can we trust the incarnate telos? There is an autogenic drive towards transcendence. Sit with that true north.
