The only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die.
– Carlos Castaneda
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.
To compare Tensegrity with yoga or t’ai chi is not possible. It has a different origin and a different purpose. The origin is shamanic, the purpose is shamanic.
To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior’s spirit. It takes power to do that.
A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.
Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t, it is of no use.
A man of knowledge chooses a path with a heart and follows it and then he looks and rejoices and laughs and then he sees and knows.
All paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart!
We have to balance the lineality of the known universe with the nonlineality of the unknown universe.
We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
Leave Jesus on the cross. He’s very happy there!
