The Goal and The Light

From the journal of physicist Arkadiusz Jadczyk*

FEBRUARY, 1967: Somewhere there is the goal. A little light is shining. Sometimes it fades away. Then suddenly it shows up again. One goes to it - this way. A segment of the path is seen. It is not a safe path. This one segment, that can be seen from here, may cost a life. What after that? Perhaps the path gets smooth again. Perhaps it misses the goal by a great distance. Perhaps it ceases to exist. And now a someone appears on this path.
Someone who has the faith that he will succeed. It does not matter that so many have failed. He will get there. He is not doing any better than others. Certainly. But he has faith. He already made a part of it. He does not know if it is a little or alot. Thats for sure. He does not count the distance that is already behind. He does not remember. In any case, from the current (position) he cant see the point he started his travel from.
By the way, not everyone is attracted by the light. Some do not see it at all. They dont even know that there is such (a) thing as light. Therefore they wander in the darkness. They are not able to understand others. Other people see the light, once in awhile, and they are fascinated by it. But at the same time it breaks their hearts. Because they do not believe that they can get there themselves. There are also those who see and who have faith.
They could get there - but why should they? Well, thats their problem. Finally, there are those who see, who have faith and who want, but they are unable to make a step. Every new attempt ends with a paralysis in their legs - they end with emaciation, they drop with fatigue. I also know those who see and want and even go, yet they are absentminded. The goal disappears from their view. They get deluded by false lights.
SYNTHESIS: Do not spend your life in a sleep. Do not lose your way in the labyrinth. And die as it befits a man. One must not look at others. At those that do nothing. Laziness is contagious. One can get infected with it, without knowing, and the therapy is difficult. One must not look at others. At those who do nothing. Because afterwards there is only a pity. And one becomes angry at yourself.
*A special thank you to Arkadiusz Jadczyk for allowing us to use his persoal journal entry for this piece. Mr. Jadczyk is a physicist and a great inspiration to all of us here.
