On a hilltop with forest and scenery, or by a lake; a centre for many people to receive instruction and to gain one’s own experiences; teaching ourselves to know; minds glowing with energy, wisdom and freedom. How it will look like or where it will be, I do not know. Whether it would be old or new, I do not know. Nor do I know which year it will happen. But those who visit, will go home lighter and wiser.

If you don‘t ask for help, then the answer is always no.
