Respect for All

generosity2

There must be respect
for all forms of life.
Mankind is not superior
and therefore entitled
to command, destroy, or
use without consciousness.
One must pay homage for
what one uses. There can
be no taking without giving.
Nature demands equilibrium;
our peace, our very lives
depend on it.

“When was the last time you spent an entire day doing exactly what you wanted to do? Said exactly what you wanted to say? You have a belief system, a rule set. Stuffing these things in a box and being someone else makes you exactly that. Someone else.”

“The fear is not of death, the fear is of time, and if you look deeply into it then you find that the fear is of an unlived life – you have not been able to live.  If you live, then there is no fear.  If life comes to a fulfillment there is no fear.  If you have enjoyed, attained the peaks that life can give – if your life has been an orgasmic experience, a deep poetry vibrating within you, a song, a festival, a ceremony, and you lived each moment of it to its totality – then there is no fear of time.  Then the fear disappears.”

- Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“Too many of us succumb to a weak internal story informed by flawed but popular beliefs.  We are reactionary to objective events, easily buffeted by the winds of change.  Pop culture, people we interact with daily, and external events shape and reinforce this subjective reality.  In these instances, we end up being extras in someone else’s story, reacting our way through life, lacking integrity and out of balance.”

- Mark Divine, The Way of the Seal

Cry

Crying is therapeutic
laughter is, too
a good mix of both
if often needed
