“It is easy to love perfection. The difficulty consists in loving the human with his good and bad.”–
“We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it is honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.” – Carl G. Jung
What can we do to pour brilliance into the cliché of life, to feel its ascension, greatness, and significance?
We have to let the walls around us fall. Let us leave the comfort of banal certainties and look for those people and experiences, who will hear our silent scream, our need for essences, interdependence, and unity.
Do not be afraid to live!
Don’t live the abundance and excess of your senses with shyness. Choose only the beautiful forms of excess: love, creation, growing. Inhale an overdose of “Zorba-Buddha” as often as possible, that form of lucid and controlled madness, that will melt the lead that flows through your veins and transform it into a desire to celebrate the maximum humanity in you wholeheartedly.
Do not stop yourself from experiencing the peak states of existence, those states that annihilate anxieties of time, mortality, isolation, and loneliness.
