Life purpose

A life of latency, of waiting, wasting and playing the wastrel, is not for us. We are here to express who we are in our essence. That’s the job. And it’s not optional. “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

Words to die by

“Forgive them. They don’t know what they’re doing.”

We act according to our level of consciousness, neither higher nor lower. The realization of this is forgiveness.

More suffering comes into the world by people who take offence than by people who give it.

Love’s first subtraction

In order for ego to function vigorously, conflict is necessary. This, of course, requires enemies. (Super-inflated egos curate actual lists of enemies.) When Jesus said, “Forgive your enemies,” he meant, Have no enemies.

Judge not

Men who love themselves do not contradict (from the Latin for speak against) themselves. Self-criticism is truly the grievous error. Many have perished out there, on the hot sands of their own contempt.
