The Knowing Begins

The Knowing Begins

My heart has more rooms in it than a whore house. ~Gabriel García Márquez I have lost count of the chambers in my heart ravaged by betrayal, cauterized by knife incised pain, cavities left permanently incapable of feeling any facet of love, rooms utterly useless for Zen presence. I wish my heart was also free […]

Love Is Not Ultimate Reality

Love Is Not Ultimate Reality

Love is a striking example of how little reality means to us. ~Marcel Proust Contemporary society depicts love as the ultimate reality, the single source of truth cutting through falsehoods, the source of ultimate knowledge.

We wanted to be lions and we’re no more than castrated cats. ~Roberto Bolaño It is the natural inclination of man, in his youth, to view himself as the head of a great pride that will bully its way through the world leaving a scent trail that makes others tremble and change course. And if […]

Balancing the Past with the Future

Balancing the Past with the Future

Concern for the future makes cowards of us and the burden of the past weighs us down. ~Munsi Premchand Any sensible person must have some focus on the future so as not to sacrifice the long term for the now…just enough now so as not to sacrifice joy in the near term or the long […]
