The Philosophy Of Wine by Béla Hamvas

Hamvss was perhaps ignored by some because he praised God and rejected agnosticism in an age of Godlessness. He was also controversial as he was critical of women, not a popular theme today as he considered them to be incapable of nurturing true friendships or see the bella in its entirety.

Therefore, he did not see them as good statesmen or politicians. However, in our modern age of rising technology and excessive materialism, there is an increasing need to accept Hamvas and become one of his disciples.

There is an increasing affinity in all of us towards the magic of silence. Hamvas deeply believed this.

The time in our human existence may not be too far away that silence will be phased out around us entirely. The secret of friendship is the opposite: The mission we have is threefold: But in the final analysis we have only one combined mission: To look outside into the gray daybreak in November, to come out onto the patio and there is no one in sight. This loneliness can be cured only by the knowledge that you have a better chance of deciphering the beauty of life in solitary confinement because that is when you begin to understand the essence of God who is one and only.

You can be temporarily happier in a social setting, but you can only access God when you are by yourself. The local pub is a place where those injuries are healed. In sum, our mission is to lead our fellow human beings to salvation and redemption.


We need to be lifted into the stratosphere onto another level of existence where our spiritual essence can be exposed. A man will often forget his lovers, but will always remember his friends. True friendship will be found when all four of these are present at the same time.
