Life cannot give me what I need while I chase after what I want. What comes to me unbidden, unanticipated, is the precondition to contentment. Contentment is not an achievement. Not a result.
If you know what you want to do, and if you really know it, then nobody on earth will be able to prevent you from doing it.
Want what you have; do not want what you don’t have. Cultivate space.
Wanting change prevents change. Change happens when we stop wanting. The essential thing is to investigate wanting, to enter the home of insecurity and introduce yourself to the tenant.
Hope is not an antidote to fear but rather an aspect of fear. Hope and fear are two ends of the same pencil.
“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”
