A Hermann Hesse Christmas: What If You Eliminated Fear?

It was at a concert of lovely old music. After two or three notes of the piano the door was opened...to the other world. I sped through heaven and saw God at work. I suffered holy pains. I dropped all my defences and was afraid of nothing in the world. I accepted all things and to all things gave up my heart.

--Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf.
