Now really when we go back to falling in love, and say it's crazy... falling.
You see, we don't say, rising into love. There is in it the idea of the fall.
And it goes back, as a matter of fact, to extremely fundamental things.
That, there is always a curious... tie. At some point, between the fall and the creation.
Taking this ghastly risk is the condition of there being life.
You see for all, the life is an act of faith and an act of gamble.
The moment you take a step, you do so on an act of faith because you don't really know that the floor's not going to give under you feet.
The moment you take a journey, what an act of faith.
The moment you enter into any kind of human undertaking in a relationship, what an act of faith.
See, you've given yourself up. But, this is the most powerful thing that can be done.
Surrender, see? And love is an act of surrender to another person.
Total abandonment.
I give myself to you.
Take me, do anything you'd like with me.
So, that's quite mad. Because, you see, it's letting things get out of control. All sensible people keep things in control.
Watch it, watch it, watch it...
Security? Vigilance?
Watch it, police. Watch it, guards. Who's going to watch the guards?
Actually therefore, the course of wisdom, what is really sensible, is to let go, is to commit oneself, to give oneself up and that's quite mad.
So, we come to the strange conclusion, that in madness lies sanity.
