There is no purpose in getting anywhere if, when you get there, all you do is think about getting to some other future moment.
Life exists in the present, or nowhere at all, and if you cannot grasp that you are simply living a fantasy.
There is nothing like security in this life.
Looking for security,which can also be said to be like “avoiding all risks”, is like jumping off a cliff while holding on to a rock for safety – an absurd illusion.
We must allow ourselves to take all the risks of this life,even though they will always kill a part of us,when we are still living,and allow the killed part to re incarnate into a more useful form for us to move forward in life.
The doctrine of reincarnation can be more accurately thought about as a constant rebirth, of death throughout
life, and the continual coming and going of universal energy, of which we are all part, before and after death.
Destruction is as necessary as creation.
Think about all the rotting and new growth that takes place all the time in a natural forest.
Chaos must exist if we are to know what order is.
Both aspects of reality, in tension with one another, are necessary to keep
the whole game going: the unity of opposites.
Don’t worry about the future,
Or know that worrying is as effective as
trying to solve an algebra equation by
chewing bubble gum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to
be things that never crossed your
worried mind,the kind that blindsides you at 4 p.m. on some idle Saturday afternoon.
But even with all your troubles and victories,don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts.
Don’t put up with people who are
reckless with yours either.
Don’t waste your time on jealousy either.
Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind others in life;the race is long and in the end, it’s only a race against yourself.
Remember compliments you receive,
forget the insults, if you succeed in
doing this, you will tell me how joyful life really turns out to be.
Keep your old love letters,and throw away your old bank statements.
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what
you want to do with your life; many of us don’t either.
The most interesting people I know
didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to
do with their lives!
Some of the most interesting 40-year-
olds I know still don’t.
Get plenty of calcium in a glass of yoghurt.
Be kind to your knees,and don’t always go down on your knees beging for things you can work for.
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t.
Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you
Maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll
dance the ‘Funky Chicken’
On your 75th wedding anniversary.
Whatever you do, don’t congratulate
yourself too much or berate yourself either.
Your choices are half chance, so are
Enjoy your body, use it every way you
can to come alive every day.
Don’t be ashamed of it, or what other people think of it;
It’s the greatest treasure and an instrument of all joys you’ll ever
Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it
but your own living room.
Read the directions to your destiny, even if you don’t intend to follow them.
Do not read every beauty magazine you can lay your hands on; it will
only make you feel ugy.
Understand that friends come and go,but a precious few, who should hold on,give them your all!
Work hard to bridge the gaps in
geography and lifestyle,for as the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young
Live in a City sometime, but leave
before it makes you hard.
Live in deep in the countryside sometime, but leave before it makes you soft.
Accept certain inalienable truths;
Prices will rise, politicians will philander,
you, too, will get old,and when you do, you’ll fantasize that when you were young,prices were reasonable, politicians were noble.
Don’t expect anyone else to support you;
maybe you have a trust fund, maybe
you’ll have a wealthy spouse,but you never know when either one
might run out on you.
Don’t mess too much with your hair,or by the time you’re 40 it will look 85.
Be careful whose advice you buy but be
patient with those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing
it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal pit of time goneby, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts,and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
Above all else,cherish your present,it is the only real time you own,just this moment.
