The World's Biggest Problem

Our biggest problem in the world, the absence of living structure, the chocked difficulty of finding true freedom, true art, all comes from this: That people do not know – emotionally – how to please themselves, by their inner thought police.  
Creating living structure is to be attained, in the end, by the greatest and most subline process which can happen: that each person lives, works, exists, in such a fashion that they truly please themselves. 
Then we may say, if we wish, that we are close to God. – Christopher Alexander, The Luminous Ground, page 299
