The Academy of European Arts and Culture Long Island Message Board › "Don Quixote: A Journey Toward Consciousness" This Saturday in Great Neck
|A former member||
Please join us this Saturday, April 20th in Great Neck at 4:30 p.m. for a presentation and discussion titled, "Don Quixote: A Journey Toward Consciousness"
Miguel de Cervantes, one of the well known Conscious Men to grace our western culture, gives us not only the first modern novel, but the story of knight errant on a journey toward awakening. Don Quixote is a tale that shows us that we are authors of our own existence and can strive for the beauty of the inner world, the true inner beauty of the soul, rather than the ephemeral outer beauty.
From the novel:
"There are two types of beauty: one of the soul, the other of the body; that of the soul emerges and shows itself in its understanding, its honesty, its good conduct, liberality, and proper upbringing, and each of these fit and may be found in an ugly man; when one lays eyes on this type of beauty, and not on that of the body, love tends to grow quickly and with advantage."
Guests are asked to contribute $15.00.
Please RSVP on the Conscious Harmony meetup page and email Vanessa for our address and directions.
"One man scorned and covered in scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world was better for this."
Looking forward to being on this journey with you,
