Even if you intellectually understand what things are in themselves, if they linger on as objects of inspection there is no benefit in such (understanding). In order to acquaint your intellect with what intrinsically matters, you cannot afford to wait but have to go into the wildwood. The wildwood has very little of the turmoil that comes with sensual distractions; it is free from all the frustrations caused by fear and harm. Right now hurry into the wildwood of inner calm that is far superior to the joys of the heavenly cities.
