let go

To ascend you must be detached. To fly and soar, the eagle lets go of the limb.

Unconditional love: where those in its presence have no shadows.

an uncomfortable good

If your conscience is annoyingly present at critical moments, be grateful. The self-righteous and evil don't have this problem.

avoid absurdity

Inference based, theories cannot account for factual or dynamic anomalies. They are intellectual appealling high-brow fictive explanations that institutionally satisfy in spite of limitations that are often marginalized, hidden, or dismissed. Not explaining everything, they are only tentative explanations. As a result, theories should never be dogmas or ideologies.

Some follow their hearts, others have hearts that struggle hard to follow them. Then there are those hearts that have nothing to lead or to follow.

for the love of being correct

The ego can be an obnoxious companion. In expressing your thoughts, facts or opinions, sequester your ego, graciously ready to be corrected if conversation finds you in error.

My head may turn to other things, not my heart.

Excessive patience can be as wrong as the wrong done in the face of patience.

the intimate prayer of exquisite simplicity

As was his particular habit the first evening of each school year, the portly Headmaster strolled with imposing presence and measured footfalls through the school's dormitory biding each new young student an amiable good night.

Approaching the door of the last room, the Headmaster immediately stopped as he overheard the most intimate prayer of exquisite simplicity:

This is me
This is your's
This is thanks
This is all

perfect faith

Not knowing the mechanics and physics of flight, the bird flies. Perfect faith is not the precedent to action but is the act itself.

break out of the bell curve

Don't compare yourself to others; rise above your instincts. Break out of the bell curve.

I was asked, ˝What is cleverness?˝ I replied, ˝Negligence in the long term.˝

the inscrutable you

Why complain about heaven's ways being so inscrutable when your ways are so curiously inscrutable to your neighbor? It's a little like one dog looking quizzically at another dog barking at the moon.

changing places

Our death is something that happens to others.
