This detailing of the sources does not need to prevent us from thinking on
the content of the quotation.
In our study, there must be a balance between the part and the whole, between the detail and global vision, between the tree and the forest.
But a THIRD element may be equally important in our studies: inner silence, inner peace, pure contemplation.
Best regards, Carlos.
