Stake your life on something
Does anything truly matter? All we need is yearning for the utmost.
You can’t change everything, but you can be involved in introspection, accountability and transformation.
Are we sheep?
I wonder, are we sheep or people? Sheep are four-legged ungulates. People are two-legged ambulates, strangulates. Our dreams are awfully small. A nice place to live and a car, a family, a vacation. Dressing up, climbing the ladder. Small talk and pleasantries. Is that all there is?
How to wake up
What is the first thing you say to yourself in the morning? As wakefulness arrives, fight the inertia. The inertia that convicts you of who you are, who you think you are: your appearance, your health, your age, your position, your possessions. Don’t underestimate yourself. What matters is this very day.
Spiritual jujitsu
Spiritual jujitsu is a kind of conceptual agility, like a gymnast doing a double twist and back flip at the same time. Spiritual jujitsu is a superlative creative act. It means that the question is wrong. It means that everything you thought you knew was false.

What is Freedom?
 

“Ask the most crying, urgent question: What is the secret of existence? Wherefore and for whose sake do we live? Only those who have not tasted the terror of life, only those who claim that it is a pleasure to live and that more and only pleasure is in store for the generations to come, can deny the essential necessity of asking: Wherefore? For whose sake?”

Abraham Heschel, Man is Not Alone

“It doesn’t matter if that city exists now, or ever will exist. The important thing is to always hold the image of it up before oneself, and, thus beholding it, constitute oneself its citizen.” Plato

"Anyone who genuinely looks for something will find it
A candle is made to become entirely flame.
In that annihilating moment
It has no shadow."
Jalalludin Rumi
